Local Lens: Collecting Everyday Scenes in Chile

To see more of Chile through the lens of a local, follow @valentinagreene on Instagram.

Valentina Greene (@valentinagreene) is always going beyond the surface when she’s photographing a scene. “I enjoy looking beyond the things people usually see—like backyards or barns,” she says. “Behind facades and behind the scenes for the real deal. It’s my way of trying to get to know people and their stories.” Among Valentina’s favorite local places in Chile are the tiny towns near Lago Vichuquen. She says, “I am inspired by traces or clues that reflect people’s daily lives. Things that seem unimportant are precious to me.” Valentina also loves photographing the beach in Maitencillo, “I like its minimal scenario.” In her hometown of Santiago, Valentina recommends La Vega, a street market “full of color, noise, smells, dogs and the best characters.”
