Photographers: Martin Chambi (Peru, 1891-1973)

Figure 1.--Martin Chambi took this portrait in Cuzco during 1935. It is apparently a teacher with some of her students. We are not sure who the younger boy is, we suspect a child of a family servant.  

Martin Chambi was born in a small village in the Andes and is Peru's most important photographer from Peru. He is especially noted for his classic images of the ndes and the Andean people. Many of his photographs are from Cuzco. This of course was the ancient Incan capital. We do not have many examples of his work, but we note a 1935 portrait of some children in a courtyard.
