Peruvian Faces

Faces are beautiful but a new beauty unfolds when the photo is in black & white. After recently returning from Peru, I gazed over my photos & enjoyed the color but history & story started to unfold when the black & white palette came into being. Some of these faces show a narrative that is hard for me to imagine in my North American mind set. Hard lives but ones that still have joy. untitled-80-2 untitled-92-2 untitled-107-2 untitled-125-3 untitled-128-2 untitled-35-2untitled-90-2 untitled-71-4 untitled-47-2

  1. I agree with you, Shereen. B/W photos can tell so much more of the story because we’re not being encouraged to concentrate trait on the colors. I love the way you were able to catch their emotion, their hard life, their cuteness, their smile. Nicely done!
