Nick Ballons photographic series ‘El Alto’

The project of 'El Alto' is a combination of Bolivian emerging architectural photographs by Nick Ballon, as well as still life images of the miniature versions by photographer Jonathan Minster. Each building is represented as a diptych that connects the vibrant and flourishing growth of Bolivia with the old, spiritual belief of indigenous Aymara people who largely make up the population of El Alto.

There are three diptych prints are available to buy from and all proceeds will go towards Nick Ballon's new photo-book called 'The Bitter Sea'. 'The Bitter Sea' project will be a photographic exploration into why the landlocked country of Bolivia still has a painful longing for its sea lost in a war to Chile over 129 years ago.
