Martín Chambi, a campesino of Indian descent born in 1891, was one of Peru's and the world's finest photographers of this century. His documentary work from 1920-1950 was among the first to record the post-colonial society of Peru. "The nearly one hundred duotones in this book record every level and segment of Chambi's Peru: the solitary figure of a campesino; an open-air military banquet framed by Andean peaks; a portrait of the local men's basketball team; a community of Franciscan monks; young ladies seated in a chicherí, or bar. . ." Introductory pieces frame Chambi's work in the cultural and political climate of the day.
