Land of The Wind

Tierra del Viento (Land of the Wind) takes us on a beautiful road trip with fine-art photographer Eliseo Miciu as he sets out to capture Patagonia’s moving soul.

You drive and drive and wind is the constant. Wind defines the landscape, the lifestyle, the habits… Just about everything here.

Eliseo’s breathtaking pictures transport us to a seemingly different time and space. We follow him as he challenges the wind, perches from dazzling heights on a Condor’s nest and crawls though windswept grasslands to catch a glimpse of elusive wild horses.

Between the flurry of activity of the photo shoots, he finds himself surrounded by the vast emptiness of Patagonia. Calm conversations fill the countless long hours spent driving and slowly reveal the artist’s bumpy road to pursuing his true vocation.
