Photo dump: Exploring Iruya

The past few days I’ve been heading closer to Bolivia, immersed in the remoteness of North West Argentina. Experiencing the tranquil feeling of being alone. Surrounded by nature and just enough people; exactly the kind of ‘lost’ I’ve been seeking.

Leaving Purmamarca, then passing overnight in Humahuaca, I was fortunate to finally arrive in Iruya during an annual traditional festival. A remote town literally at the end of the road.

I stayed with an Iruyan family of three generations in their very simple and beautiful world. Living with such humbling people I felt extremely content in the imposing landscape they call home. The locals main language is Quechua but luckily Spanish as well. A quiet countryside of barren gorges and multi-coloured mountains, I could spend a long time exploring these rustic spaces. Kris
