Peru Portraits

mpkongo-1-15 Other than Machu Picchu, one of the big reasons Kongo wanted to visit Peru was to have a chance to capture some of the beautiful people that he has seen in other photographs.  There is something quite magical about the faces of the Peruvian people.

  1. I’ve always liked the hats they wear and the bright colors. In Chile the people are much more business like in their dress. Food is another reason we look forward to our visit to Peru. Chilean food needs more spice!


  2. Beautiful faces and beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing.


  3. great collection, kongo, but that first pic is one of your best shots EVER! her eyes are saying so much!!!


    • Thanks, Stephen. That was my favorite too. I have about 100 of her and she didn’t mind me really getting in her face. I liked the shadows and lighting.
