Satellite television is one of the few ways that residents in the Chocó are able to break their isolation from the rest of the world. More recently 3g signal gives access to internet, but TV remains the most common form of entertainment.

A bag full of fruits from a beach walk. I found the mood of Chocó to be more easily conveyed in still lifes such as this. The soft light, defused by the ever-present clouds of the rainforest, elevating the vibrant fruit beyond their common connotations and almost to objects of a spiritual nature.
