Together with Leslie Searles, who interprets photography as the means to reveal hidden things, discover the secrets and charms of Peru’s history, lurked in the imperceptible details before the eyes of a mere spectator.
Let yourself get carried away by the version of reality that you want to capture in your photograph while walking through an enigmatic square located in the heart of the historic center of Lima, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Immerse yourself in a mixture of European architectural influences, French-style sculptures with representations of Andean animals, one of the first theaters in the city, a hotel that marked an era and, on a corner, the best nougat in town, a delicacy with a history closely related to a Catholic Saint and to one of the largest processions in South America.
Continue to Calle Capón and enter the fascinating world of Chinatown. Engage with the intensity of its commercial activities, the chaotic flow of its pedestrians and street vendors, the aroma of the Chinese restaurants, arches, and temples. Discover art pieces brought from the East and fortune-tellers in every corner. Experience a burst of sensations of one of the most important and influential migrant populations in our history, which will be forever recorded in your memory and photographs.
“For me, photography is the medium that serves to reveal hidden things. It is looking beyond what is apparently happening at first glance”.
Leslie Searles, photographer.
