Peruvian Artistry Graces Years First Victor Issue

10/01/2011 If you haven't seen the January issue of Victor yet, you may be surprised to learn that it has a distinctive South American accent.

Three stories reflect a South American perspective. First, the cover shot was captured by Colombia-based Dutch-born photographer Niels van Iperen. Second, Peruvian Hasselblad Master Morfi Jiminez Mercado used an H3D-39 for his portraiture of inhabitants of the Andean province of Cuzco. Third, the Hasselblad Owners' Club chose an image by Peruvian fashion photographer as their Photo of the Month.


News. Special Edition H4D-40s: Want a distinctive Stainless Steel Hasselblad H4D-40? Act fast. Only 100 units were made available. Or perhaps you fancy the H4D-40 Ferrari model created by these two premiere brands. A small number of units—499—of this limited edition camera are available.

Niels van Iperen. This Dutch-born Colombian photographer captures the rich diversity of Colombia—his adopted country—and its inhabitants. Through his contrast-rich, dramatic portraits, he presents a multi-faceted, hopeful look at this South American country.

Edward Alba. Members of the Hasselblad Owners Club selected an image by Peruvian fashion photographer as Photo of the Month. In this article, Alba shares some of his most beautiful shots and explains why one of his models had to stand still for 22 hours.

Morfi Jiminez Mercado. Passionate about portrait photography, Peruvian Hasselblad Master Mercado used artificial lighting and atmospheric coloring to enhance his images of local people in Cuzco, an Andean province. Mercado's next assignment takes him to Iquitos, Peru.

Preview. An H3DII-50 in hand, Danish photographer Henrik Sorensen created dramatic underwater photos of dancers from the Royal Danish Ballet. Through his masterful use of light and shadow, and distinctive poses, Sorensen has composed images that move and captivate the viewer.
