This documentary photography was submitted to Edge of Humanity Magazine by multimedia journalist and documentary photographer Harriet Dedman.
From: “Eyes on Peru” By Harriet Dedman. Taken in June 2015, this brief series of images features faces and places from throughout Lima, Cusco and Peru’s Sacred Valley.
Peru’s cultural history has been one of empire, conquest and syncretic enforcement, its modern identity struggling with the undeveloped past. It is the indigenous history of exoticism and tragedy which has survived in the popular conscience, elevated by the external tourism which now pours into the nation, and influenced by a traumatic modern history.
