Quechua man & his dog, Perú 2011
Best of Photography 2011, Photographer´s Forum Magazine.
I was walking around Cuzco with my camera when I saw this Quechua man carrying his dog like it was his own child and that piece of bread…
I just fell in love. I stopped him and asked him if I could make a portrait. He gave me that look.
Maybe you know that Quechua mothers carry their children all day long in a Peruvian cloth exactly like My Quechua Man is doing in this photo.
His attitude brought me so many questions about his life… I wish I could have spent more time talking with him.
