Costa Rica News – Juan José Pucci and his sons, Sergio and Giancarlo are native trotters from Costa Rica. Fascinated by the color, texture and geometry of the natural landscape, they persist in registering magical moments: a sunrise in the volcano Rincón de la Vieja, or acid rain at Turrialba volcano.
Pucci says they have had the passion and the luck to travel, by land and by air, a good part of the country and have discovered a lot of new things they did not know. These new discoveries give him comfort about the legacy of his work. He goes on to explain that they love nature and find all topics related to the subject exciting. The photographer describes that the volcanoes have a special attraction and people in this country have them very close to them. He states that these nature’s creations are alive and the backbone of this country.
Juan José’s photographs were taken ashore. His children contributed aerial material that was reviewed with the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Ovsicori) to have its scientific endorsement.
Through the process, Pucci and his children began to discover new places in their photography that they did not know. Cacho Negro(located inside Braulio Carrillo National Park) is one of those locations, and several lagoons in the middle of the jungle. With the help of the Ovsicori, they realized they are of volcano origin.
Additional information like the craters of volcanoes, now inhabited, are included in the book because according to Pucci there is a direct interaction between the activity of volcanoes and the human activity around it.
Twenty volcanoes of the book have a brief description card for readers, to inform them of their geographic location and altitude. The book closes with panoramas of Isla del Coco, one of the magical rarities of the Tico territory because it is itself a volcano.
The book will be sold for $ 28 starting November 15 at the International Bookstore, Café Britt locations and other small stores. People are able to purchase the book prior to the release on Tuesday for $23 through the site www.volcanescr.com.
