On December the 20th I went to the northern desert of Peru in search of myths and stories about the enchanted people of the sand dunes.
In the Sechura sand desert in the north of Peru, a great pre-columbian civilization took place : The Sec people.
But the Sec disappeared with the Spanish invasion. Today, the habitants of the Sechura town tell that the Sec people didn't die, but are hidden inside the sand dunes. They say the Sec like to appear at the setting sun light. They called it the enchanted hour.
One of the people that appear is a young woman that they named Maria Dominga. I took portraits of this enchanted person and of the enchanted places to share with you all.
