Reviews

"Without a doubt, Mart n Chambi's images laid bare all the social complexity of the Andes. Those images place us in the heart of highland feudalism, in the haciendas of the large land-holders, with their servants and concubines, in the colonial processions of contrite and drunken throngs, and in the smoky chicher'as. . . . Of Mart n Chambi it is enough to say that in those thirty-some years of photographing, there was no corner of the Cuzco universe he did not appropriate or immortalize."--Mario Vargas Llosa, from Foreword

"As the world has awakened to the enormous riches of historical and contemporary Latin American art, renewed interest has been sparked in the extraordinary work of Peruvian photographer Chambi. . . . With informative, insightful introductions by Ranney and Mondejar, this is a volume not to be missed."--Publishers Weekly
