Discovering Textiles - the spinners at the end of the world

Using the same dyes that weavers have used for centuries to dye their yarns, Lujan Agusti's tinted photographs pay homage to a tradition that is being kept alive by women in Tierra del Fuego. 

in this article from National Geographic the traditions of the Argentinian region at the tip of South America are beautifully captured in these coloured images. In the 1970s British Pathe news captured the craft on film (video below). 

Lujan is a documentary photographer who lives in Tierra del Fuego where she explores culture, identity and gender through visual storytelling and photography. You can see more of Lujan's work here in a series exploring a Mexican community.
