The TAFOS project

July 2002

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.
