I've been lucky enough to go to Peru twice now, mainly thanks to a wonderful woman called Andrea. My first trip was in January 2005, my second in July 2005. Of course, on both trips I tried to take plenty of photographs.
Peru's an interesting place to photograph. In Lima, you've got interesting Colonial architecture as subjects, but all the usual difficulties shooting in a city: noise, bustle, people wandering in and out of frame and so on. It's difficult to concentrate on a shot for more than ten seconds or so without feeling the need to move along. Nevertheless, I came back with some photographs that I was pleased with. Along with the colonial architecture, Lima (and Peru in general) has a somewhat colourful aesthetic - I think that the mosiacs from the Parque Del Amor show this quite well
Outside of Lima, you're surrounding my desert. Peru's a big old place, and the desert is huge. Deserts present a different challenge to the photograph: they can be hard work to make interesting. More often than not, you end up with a dull picture of some sand. Thankfully, Pisco and the Paracas Islands came to the rescue.
