From Peru

Filed under: General — Artflux at 10:46 am on Wednesday, March 8, 2006

In 1983 I visited Peru briefly with a couple of friends. I returned the following summer to work on a series of documentary photographs. I rented an apartment along the Pacific Ocean in the Lima suburb of Mira Flores. It was the Peruvian winter although it hardly could be considered winter with the warm waters from the ‘garrua’ to keep things summer like. The Instituto Cultural Peruano-Norteamericano hosted an exhibition of my work. I studied Spanish at the institute as well. They actually published a photograph of two New York drag queens on the front page of the main newspaper La Commercial. I’m not sure that they realized that they were not women. When I returned I exhibited the photographs are the Tony Jones Gallery in Houston Texas.
