The pairing of visual communication and conservation

We believe that visual communication, whether it is photography or film, has a special and unique responsibility and opportunity to truly engage and change our world

Travesias Fotograficas (Photographic Journeys) is a weekly TV series created, written, filmed, produced and beautifully narrated by Ossian Lindholm to showcase and teach the world about the special places, the natural beauty and fascinating culture of Argentina and South America.

His maxim–Para Conservar, primero hay que conocer, (to conserve, first you much know)—is an important concept for those of us who wish to make a difference with our images. We can improve our artistry and the power of its impact if we have a better understanding of our subject.

In each carefully crafted and artfully filmed Travesias episode, Ossian inspires his audience while raising their consciousness about the preservation of the precious nature and sacred places of South America. In these regional portraits of special places, Ossian shares the stories of nonprofits who are working hard to protect birds, animals and environments from all over South America. His Travesias tell the stories of

The crown eagle in Tucuman
