Join us as publisher KWY Ediciones (Lima, Peru) will present new book projects at the BDC from three talented Latin American photographers. Peruvian photographer Marco Garro’s project explores the impact of mining on a community in the Peruvian Andes, “Quiulacocha.” Mexican photographer César Rodriguez’s “Hoja Dorado” focuses on the indigenous Wixaritari families working in the tobacco fields in the highlands of Jalisco, Nayarit and Durango. Musuk Nolte, founder of KWY, will speak about “Las Pertenencias del Aire,” that explores the links between Ayahuasca visions and encountering the Amazon rainforest.

The three photographers will discuss their work, followed by a Q&A.
