Carlos Jiménez Cahua/ lima

carlos explores the outskirts of lima peru in a poetic but topographical way. i love the idea of latinamericans embracing landscape as a way to speak of who we are.

"I am Peruvian by blood and birth, but I've grown up an American. In the US, and in most places, I feel like I am in a city, region, or nation—those intangible creations of people. But in Lima, I felt not like I was in a city, in Peru, or even South America, but atop the Earth herself".
