This is a long shot...but here goes:

Does anyone know of any photographer(s) in Nicaragua who use large format? I'm asking because in the Fall I have to finish a long term project there and I'm told that these days large format equipment will most likely be considered suspicious and summarily confiscated. I thought that if I link up with a large format worker in country I might arrange to use his/her equipment.

In case anyone is curious, the project is making portraits of villagers that I have known over 30 years. It started in the 1990's, continued in 2010 and '11, and now it's time to complete it.
Samples below.
