From the Americas Society: "[This exhibition] featured some 100 black-and-white photographs by the leading practitioners of the medium working in the southern Andes in the first decades of the twentieth century.These works presented a vibrant image of a nation at the dawn of the modern era – a period in Peru of economic prosperity, social progress and general optimism. Through their varied techniques and subject matter, the photographers included in the exhibition documented a cross-section of Peruvian life, and suggested the complex heritage that shaped a world in the throes of modernization."
