(Image: by Elton Núñez) Through their photo blog Yluux photographers Tetsu Espósito and Elton Núñez tell stories of the diverse spaces and people that make up Paraguay.

They explain the idea behind the blog and its name:

‘In our small but beautiful Paraguay we live surrounded by images that are stunning and worthy to capture, beautiful places to explore await us in all its territory. To make that known through the stories that we tell through our images is the central idea in the birth of “Yluux“, an ethnic “Ache” term that encompasses the meaning of nature.’
