15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
In the heights of Tururo

Because of the great migration of people from the countryside to the city that was in Peru from year 60 hereinafter, customs and experiences of coming generations were changing to the point of forgetting, in many cases, their indigenous past. Tururo is a theme about finding that past within our own families (in this case my own family), those families who often do not see for years and we know by third parties, who live far away in some forgotten place in the country where the relationship man - nature is still very much alive and latent where their customs, their beliefs, their joys, their weaknesses, etc., they remain through time. In the photo Doris (my cousin) appears riding one of his children on the horse that they used to move to raised lands where their crops are. This photo belongs to a larger theme and was held in the town center Tururo, located in the district of Chincheros in Apurimac, Peru.
