This is a series of photographies called "Apus", spirits of the mountains. Peru 2017.
The Quechua people from the Andes are one of the first habitants to live in relation with mountains and stones. They communicate with the spirits and the "enchanted people" by whispering on coca leaves or other objects before offering it to them.
Because of the European religious influence, the Quechuas decided to hide their traditions under different names or expressions. They adopted the christian cross as well as the images. Their original imaginary remains hidden, they closed the door to their world and hide the key, in order to protect their relation with the spirits of the mountains and the stones. Today we know very little of them.
Through my photographic work I want to show their mystery to reveal the existence of their spiritual world.
