17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Carlo From Perú

Although we left our countries in search of a better future, I find in several immigrants that the implicit and main reason is to find that freedom that is not available at home. This documentary project in process since 2018 was born in the form of my personal experience. Photography seeks me and finds me, forces me to represent those themes that surround me, that touch me closely, that make me suffer and free me, I am a gay immigrant in Buenos Aires. "When I arrived in buenos aires I was 23 years old, today I am 37, for the first time I could go to gay disco or enter a hotel with another man, in Peru I could not have done it."
