Faces of Peru
photos by Alex Kornhuber, Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health at GBHI will be on display from July 8 to September 27.
“Peru’s contrasting people, its rich cultures, landscapes and beauty have long captivated my attention and imagination. In 2004, I began creating a lyrical visual document that shows intimate, honest portraits of Peruvians and their relation to their environment. As a Peruvian myself, I contemplate my work as a means of breaking barriers amongst my compatriots, as a way of seeing each other face to face. Through this work, the camera becomes my excuse to approach my fellow Peruvians and to empathize with them. My experience as an Atlantic Fellow has placed even greater emphasis on the role of different social determinants of health in influencing the aging trajectories of older Peruvians.”
“Faces of Peru” is a photo-essay that reflects an honest approximation to the incredible beauty and diversity of Peru.
