"I would like to make an experimental and artistic photographic work on the Guna Yala and their lifestyle. As a photographer I will work with a simple camera, a pinhole camera without technic and I use analog material. So I need no electricity. I will connect the analogue photo material with the material at the location. Before and after the exposure." - Vera Nowottny
DOCUMENTATION OF RESIDENCY AT TROPIC W/ LA WAYAKA CURRENT
As part of Nowottny's residency she was exploring the material and world around her through different modes of photography and experiments. Part of this included working closely together with the women of Guna Yala, developing relationships and understanding their traditional designs through drawing onto photo plates to later be developed into experimental works. These are some photos of her working and her work environment at Tropic taken by La Wayaka Current.
