This is a 90-second video notebook from Isla de Sol on Lake Titicaca, the island were the Inca believed the sun was created. After spending a day traversing the lake's largest island, it wasn't difficult to imagine the spiritual connection the setting inspired. The sublime beauty of the island and its immediate environs imparted in me a connection and inner peace than not even Machu Picchu, where I would visit about a week later, was able to match.
I didn't shoot much during the day-long hike across the island's spine, just these half dozen handheld scenes.
I've watched several black and white films in recent weeks so I decided to render this in both color and monochrome as well. The color version is here: vimeo.com/80547469
