Lima in a nutshell. These photos are the consequence of my seeing and my walks around Lima, Perú. All of them were taken in 2017 and in Lima downtown. These photos try to show the contrast between the humour and the drama, the ancient and the modern, the happiness and the suffering, all of those colliding together in that small space full of stories, characters and colours. That’s why those were done in colour, trying to keep the original look of the author and the essence of the characters shown there.
