"It appears to me that nothing can be more improving to a young naturalist than a journey in distant countries." - Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle

All of the photographs in this collection were taken between 1983-1986 while Jeff Waugh was working with world renown Canadian photographer Courtney Milne. The two conducted photography workshops and natural and human history tours together in Ecuador and spent their "spare time"  traveling off the beaten track in a jeep through the Andes searching for "sacred places". The original photographs were taken with Kodachrome 64 and Fuji 100 slide film.

Rural Ecuador offers the photographer an amazing opportunity to see, learn about and photograph the lifestyle of the people of this beautiful country. Esperanza is a small community on the old "cobblestone road" just outside Ibarra in the province of Imbabura.

As we traveled the cobblestone road we passed by people walking along the road, working in the fields and just relaxing or playing games by their homes.

This man seems proud and pleased with his work. Many shop keepers work hard, long hours to make a living (in whatever they do).
