It’s a couple of months now since I left Iquitos, but I still have the jungle on my mind.
Supay Fotos is a collective of photographers in Peru who work both individually as well as a collaborating on projects. While I was in Lima they had a show of photos on Iquitos called Borde (which means border or edge, as in ‘the edge of reason’). One of their members, Adrian Portugal, whom I had the pleasure of meeting while I was in Iquitos, recently sent me some photos of the project.
Again, I was super-lucky to be in Lima and be able to visit this show. Here are a couple of photos from the exhibit:
The New Yorker published one of Portugal’s images for a story back in 2010. For the occasion, their blog Photo Booth, wrote a post about Supay’s work.
