DOWNTOWN LIMA: Documentary Project
On the basis of my photographic intention, which is: the search for the relationship of the individual with his urban environment, whether from the social, economic, religious, political, racial, etc. point of view. and all those ethnographic elements that allow us to identify this process of linking and identifying the individual and the city to which he belongs.
For this reason, it is precisely this search that is posed in the 30 images that I present, through the pretext of using the camera; flashes; color filter; slow speed technique combined with the dynamics and technique of street photography. DOWNTOWN LIMA is the name of my photographic project started 6 years ago in the city of Lima, a city that lives at every moment, and its characters are combined in different facets, ages, colors, cultures, countries, etc.
It is worth mentioning that my project started with black and white photography, then the use of the cell phone and now using artificial lighting techniques, which is the sample that I present.
DOWNTOWN LIMA tries to portray in a particular way on the basis of the above, the main subject of our city: OURSELVES.
