Artist's Description

Humberstone is an abandoned mining town (nitrate) in northern Chile, but perhaps the only one that efforts are being made to preserve. I had the whole town to myself for a few hours before the first bus load of sightseers arrived from the coastal town of Iquique – about 70km distant. All it lacked was a child chasing a hoop to make it a DiChirico painting, or Clint Eastwood’s character from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly to make it a film set (I just couldn’t shake Ennio Morricone’s theme tune for weeks afterwards). The large hall in the centre of the image felt like it had been abandoned just a week before. Bunting and deflated balloons hung from the walls, the effect was eerie – I later discovered that the annual reunion of mine workers had indeed occurred just weeks earlier.

Shot on Fuji transparency film on a Pentax K1000.
