Photography by Diego Lama
Sept. 11 – Dec. 6, 2009
This series of six panoramic photographs from Peruvian artist Diego Lama were taken in Lima in 2007. The large format works featuring dramatic, theatrical atmospheres emphasize a contrast between the bodies and the perfectly organized spaces. Solitary figures seem out of place in various stylized areas. Lama describes the series as a testimony about the cultural politics in Peru. The spaces he chose to photograph are all part of cultural institutions of restricted access.
