A splendid photographic exhibition can be found in the streets of Cusco. It reminds us of Cusco from earlier years and runs from the 19th of September through the 19th of October.
“Martin Chambi’s Cusco” is a display of 32 giant enlargements of the great native photographer’s prints which are displayed in Cusco.
Many of them were taken in the city of Cusco before the devastating earthquake of 1950. It is hoped this display will not only show how Cusco changed during the last century but also how its beauty, character, and people continue intact, despite the fact that the city has grown from 50,000 inhabitants to 500,000 from then to now.
The exposition is a joint effort of Dartmouth College and the Martin Chambi Archive of Photography.
