The long-standing photographic tradition of Peru spans more than a century of visual production, closely linked with documenting the social and regional characteristics of the coast, the Andean region and the Amazon forest. For Lima, the capital city, the 1970s were a period stamped by changes so profound that the size and social structure of Lima was forever redefined. No wonder those years became witness to a drastic change in photographic representation, and Lima became the new center for the production and development of Peruvian photography.
Forty years later, the transformation of Lima continues. Overflowing growth together with imminent social changes challenges the enduring relationship between Lima and the Pacific Ocean. The many contradictions existing between city and sea are further exacerbated by conflicting interests. Colonization, recreation, migration, inequality, environmental degradation, violence, and public access are all current issues underlying the works of these contemporary photographers.
From the northern to its southern boundary, Lima covers 130 kilometers of urban coastline. Each of the 16 artists captures various ways in which the town relates to the sea, using approaches including documentary, digital collage, image motion, conceptual and even photojournalistic techniques. These make up an extensive visual summary, one which ultimately links Lima´s wide heterogeneous range of cultures with its diverse photographic tradition. On the 500th anniversary of the sighting of the Pacific Ocean by Vasco Nunez de Balboa, it is clear that today both city and photography are so overwhelming that they defy comprehension if looked upon from a single place. Rather, the intersection of art, urbanism and nature faces a broad sea of multiple perspectives and opportunities.
