"Zapallal and Yurinaki are two towns outside Lima, Peru, documented by Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann who left his native Peru for Germany at age 20. Returning as a European-educated photographer, the project that became Zapallal|Yurinaki is Marroquín Winkelmann’s photographic effort to address the 40% poverty in Peru and the invisibleness of those trapped below the line. Getting involved in the communities by developing photographic workshops for the village youth, Marroquín Winkelmann also undertook the assignments, purposely shooting from a low vantage point like those of his youthful cohorts. These workshops resulted in a group exhibition where Marroquín Winkelmann’s photographs were reportedly indistinguishable from those of the children. This was just one element in his earnest collaboration with these villages, an attempt to give a photographic voice to people who have been “visually under represented,” as Jorge Villacorta says in one of the accompanying essays, and resulting in this wonderful book."- Sarah Bradley from photo-eye Blog
