The Life of Costa RicaThe "rich coast" of the conquistadores remains an abundant land both geographically and in humanity: here is a vibrant democratic society flourishing in spectacular natural settings. Native photographer Calderon shows the true life of the country in spontaneous photographic moments-over 300-like the smiles of its children, colorful processions, the indefatigable tenacity of everyday Costa Ricans at work and play set in a variety of urban, rural, historical and natural scenes. In the introduction, President Miguel Ángel Rodríguez, says "Costa Rica is a song of hope. These forceful photos of its women and men confirm it. Here everything is an expression of life. And this is, perhaps, our greatest strength."
