Barranco District stands on the cliffs that overlook the Pacific Ocean and has a great artistic/bohemian ambiance!
Barranco is a very nice neighborhood to visit when staying in Lima. It is less known than Miraflores but it is a jewel. It overlooks the Pacific Ocean and used to be a seaside resort for wealthy families. Now days it is being invaded by artists that live or work/sell here. The result of this new art meeting old architecture you can see on my pictures! :)
It is also one of the places to go to meet Lima’s nightlife. I was here only in the morning, shooting the last shots before getting the plane back home…
Barranco has a foundation myth, a legend from the XVII century that tells that a miracle happened here. It is said that a luminous cross appeared in the same place where today stands the park “Parque de la Ermita”, saving a group of fisherman who couldn’t find the shore because of the intense fog.
What separates Ed van der Elsken from the objective photographer is that he partakes in the scenes he framed. Known for his works in the 1970's and its subcultures, Elsken was the photographer of the bohemians, the ruffians, the artists, the culturally marginalized.
It takes a certain level of dedication to master a craft. Photographer Maija Karisma knows about that all too well and has poured in great time and effort into the creation of her dreamy and nuanced instant photographs.

The German photographer is one of the iconic artists that promoted "Neues Bauen" or "New Objectivity", a movement in architecture that favored functionalism. As a photographer, Werner Mantz applied the same approach to his photography.

I have come back after a week of my TEN AND ONE Artistic Residency at Lomography HQ in Vienna with my head full of ideas and projects that I would like to start and try out. By the end of the week I have a book (almost) full of tips, anecdotes and pure Lomographic love.
In the digital age, image-making has become easier. But for a photographer to grow, he's obliged to try out unfamiliar and strange things and methods. That's what photographer Neto Macedo likes to do with his photography, but only in the analogue grind.
