Belgium based photographer Brigitte Grignet started photographing the remote archipelago of Chiloé (Chile) after the tower of the church of Chonchi fell and flattened her rental car in 2002. Grignet says, she was “adopted by a family and ended up returning again and again, collecting stories of an island that believes in ghost ships, witches, God, and the power of community. Chiloé is a land of rainbows and potatoes—a place where church towers help fishermen come home.” Grignet’s Chiloé-La Cruz del Sur project recently won an Aaron Siskind Foundation Grant.
