Photographs, 1920 -1950
Martin Chambi

Martín Chambi is today regarded as one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. Between 1920 and 1950 he assembled an unprecedented collection of photographs of the people and landscape of Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital that was in his day a cultural centre in Peru. His studio was favoured by the local elite, whose fiestas, weddings and portraits he imbued with a unique outsider's sensibility. Above all, he devoted himself to photographing his own people, the highland Indians whose ancestors built Cuzco—with a keen postcolonial eye.
