The first things to come to mind when I saw those images had to be red, blue, and green; but I guess the color of the earth wasn’t entirely important in the 1920s.
But did anyone have a clue where the earth was and what colors they used? No one knew much about solar radiation or the earth’s atmosphere. I thought to myself when I saw photos of those days of the sun shining through the clouds that it was like a great cloud of dust being blown away by the sun. At that time, it felt as if the earth was being blown away.
That day on May 10 of 1915, I decided that I would take a trip to the U.S. to see what I could see. I came back four days later, and I began to see things that seemed wrong, so I decided to stop taking photographs.
However, in the 1920s, I could not resist the urge to make a photographic record. I did take some film and found a Kodak digital camera that was only an hour old, and I began to take what I thought would be interesting-to-me-the-day-it-happened-about-to-happen photographs.
But I knew that they would never reach me. I did all right taking photographs then-a month and a half, if I remember. So when I went home again, with no more film in the camera, and I had my next camera, that’s when my photograph collection began.
Do you collect any old negatives? That’s my way to get things back into the camera. I’ve seen a lot of them, some very good and some not so good. I keep some for storage.
When did you begin to use a color printer for photo making? I didn’t get all of them before I went to the U.S., because I really didn’t have the opportunity to get them in Mexico or Peru or in Europe. I had to get them in the States.
I started with black-and-white negatives. You get better looking with the black-and-white ones. I was always interested in color photography-the people, what they looked like, their facial features, clothes, jewelry. I thought that was a fascinating subject.
When did you first start to publish your photos in a book? The first book I wrote was published in 1920. It was a book for the Centro Cultural de la Photographia, or CCP
