Documentary photographer reveals the dangerous beauty of Living with Volcanoes


Volcanoes have long fascinated people, both for the destruction that they unleash combined with the mesmerizing awe they convey. As beautiful as volcanoes may be, they exude powerful forces that emanate from the deep core, and can lead to mass eradication of local towns, villages and crops.

Cris Toala Olivares is a documentary photographer having experienced with his own eyes the dangerous eruption in 2014 of the volcano Tungurahua, in Ecuador near to where he grew up. Olivares has since visited 13 volcanoes, curating a stunning collection of photographs, along with interviews had with people living there.
