Madeline Pacheco is a freelance photographer from Buenos Aires. She studied Audiovisual Design in the University of Buenos Aires, but her real passion is nature and the experiencing the landscapes of Argentina.
Through her project, Images of Argentina, Pacheco has combined her talent for photography and her passion for nature.
Images of Argentina is a project which intends to make an exhibition from Pacheco’s photographs of three very different areas of Argentina: the south of Patagonia (mainly Santa Cruz province), the “Impenetrable” in El Chaco province and the area of the Iguazú Falls in Misiones.
“I think photography is my way of being able to be in these places and capturing them in my camera is kind of absorbing these places myself,” says Pacheco.
The photographs – all taken with and old analogic reflex camera – are focused on portraying the amazing landscapes and the unique characteristics that nature holds in each area. The money from Idea Me will be used mainly for prints in the best quality paper possible and to making each frame.
“I’ve always wanted to show my photos and be able to print them in paper and not just look at them in small photos or through a computer,” says Pacheco. “So the aim of this project is exactly that. I hope I can manage to get the funding and do an exhibition!”
Last year, Pacheco spent three months working with Banco de Bosques. Through her work she was able to travel to Misiones and El Chaco. In the future she plans to continue working with Banco de Bosques and developing a humanitarian edge to her artisitic passion.
