Having spent the past 2 months in Nicaragua, I’m happy to introduce some new work to you. Tucked away in a barrio in Esteli, Nicaragua, on the edge of a dry, dusty stream bed, is the family-owned coffee processing workshop of Abraham Enrique Castillo, the Beneficio Centro America. I spent a few weeks battling dust and fleas to creating a visual portrait of this intriguing place and it’s affable owner. If you like coffee and photography, I invite you to take the time to view the series, and read the introduction.
You can also view a few other photographic essays on my blog, including:
- The story of the eccentric hermit sculptor Alberto Gutierrez, in the mountains of Tisey.
- The visual beauty of the local tobacco harvest and curing for cigar production.
- And a perennial favorite subject of mine: portraits of children.
There’s plenty to see, and I invite you to pick up a cup of good coffee and enjoy a taste of what I’ve been up to in Central America.
