The TAFOS project

Issue 347

The TAFOS project organized a network of grassroots photographers in Peru. Farmers, miners, members of ethnic communities, a diverse group whose view of the world is rarely recorded by photographs, produced an extraordinary collection of powerful images through TAFOS cameras, largely though not exclusively from Peru. Top: ‘Campesino and radio’ by Melquiades Ramos.
