Fotografía de los Andes

Fotografía de los Andes


Curated by Jorge Villacorta, director of the II Lima Photography Biennial and South American photography researcher, the exhibition carries the visitors in the extraordinary treasure of the Andean culture, through the work of several photographers based in Cuzco, Arequipa and Puno between 18th and 19th centuries.

The exhibition features 58 photographs collected by Villacorta through years of passionated work. Selected among several private collections, the photographs on display underline the multiethnic character of the South American society distinguished by deep differences between indios and white men in the turn of the century. The exhibition includes portraits and spectacular Andean landscape, from Machu Picchu to El Mist, placed side by side and realized between 1897 and 1950.
