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.

Photography has its magic to obscure reality and fabricate another. It can give the artist full control to manipulate the senses, and such is the work of French photographer Rimel Neffati, who's like a chameleon a model in front of the camera.
