This project has a special place in my life and career.
In 2012 I moved to Cuzco, Peru to document the Inti Raymi, (sun celebration).
Despite being Peruvian, I had never been in Cuzco before. In 2001, I got the opportunity to move to Miami and Cuzco could not be further from my mind.
So in order to graduate from school in 2012 I had to make a photo exhibit. Studying, photography and video, I kind of felt that I needed to go back to Peru, to my roots.
So, I decided to go back home and make my final exhibit about the country where I was born and about the very thing my country stands for. what is Peru? for me, Peru is " Inca ". In June every year, Cuzco celebrates the Inty Raymi, a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti (sun). My inspiration, pictures and ultimately, my exhibit are from the festival, as well as capturing the colors, culture and faces of the people of Cuzco.
The simplicty of their everyday lives, such as working on fields with an amazing landscape in the back, the inca textiles with wonderful colors and the difference fabrics. These three examples inspired me to document and catch their charismatic way to be.
I've always been attracted by the lines of the human body, be it women or men. More than anything, how every individual has unique movements depending on their given environment.
This inspired my on going project, titled #specificsensation It has transformed my vision of the human body and it's interaction within these ever-changing environments, as is demonstrated in my work through cropping techniques, lighting and tones.
