A butcher chops a pork at the central market in Lima. I beleive markets are the most interesting places one can visit to understand a country and its people.
Local festivities at a corrida in Arequipa. It was one of the most rewarding and genuine moments of the whole trip.
A strangely quiet scene on the otherwise busy and excessively touristic Islas Flotantes on Lake Titicaca.
The little girl of the family that hosted me on Isla Amantani. The accomodation was pretty harsh but the people were incredibly warm and hospitable.
On Lake Titicaca, at 4000 meters of altitude you get to see some incredible views. Here a storm approaches Isla Amantani at dawn.
Local market on Isla Amantani. Scenes like this bring you back to the western world of many decades ago.
A little girl at Isla Taquile on Lake Titicaca. Kids are perhaps the most rewarding subjects to photograph in Peru: every shot comes out great.
Another kid at Isla Taquile. Yes, you guessed right, she's the sister of the one you just saw.
Sculpture at Tiahuanaco archeological site. You won't see many shots of this kind in the gallery: archeological sites are always crowded and uninspiring.
One of the unforgettable sunsets on Lake Titcaca.
Kids on a school trip swimming in Lake Sandoval in the Amazon Rain Forest. Peru is such a multifaceted country: from the Andes to the Amazon in just one hour by plane.
Married women in Peru always dress pleated skirts. Here at the market in Pisac.
One of the colorful shops at the market in Chinchero. It is not always easy to catch spontaneous moments like this.
Another scene at the market in Chinchero. The light was particularly good: warm and low, casting nice long shadows.
