A Photographer's pilgrimage through southern Mexico.
Photographs by Robert A. Hansen.
Laguna Wilderness Press, Laguna Beach, 2004. 95 pp., numerous black-and-white illustrations, 12x12".
This book offers images from explorations among Maya ruins in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Platinum and silver gelatin prints interspersed with a diary of travel capture the serenity and beauty of an indigenous environment, the Spanish influence, and the persistence of traditional culture in the rain forest.
'In Yucatan Passages Robert Hansen takes us on a journey that becomes much more than a visual documentation of people and places. He has the heart of a searcher, the eyes of a poet, the hands of a craftsman - traits manifested in sensitive portraits of faces marked by time and tradition, panoramic scenes of ancient ruins with their aging stones illuminated by evening sun, intimate depictions of dark and mysterious corners of spiritual spaces. Hansen cannot help but strip bare his soul - in his pictures as well as his words - and in so doing he seduces us into experiencing his personal pilgrimage as one of
universal discovery'.-Henry Rasmussen, Publisher and Editor of Black and White Magazine
'Fantastic! Hansen does for the Yucatan what Adams did for Yosemite.'-Gustavo Arellano, OC Weekly
