Stills from Caleta Tortel. Caleta Tortel is a small isolated village of a few hundred people in the deep south of Chile. All its inhabitants are descendants of 12 families of pioneers who in 1940 reached the mouth of the great Rio Baker river to work and cut the trunks of Cypress of Guaiateca. The wheather is really hard.. Jeorge is one of the last lumberjacks trying to keep his family life going on...

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
