The TAFOS project

The TAFOS project photographs.

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*. *Centre left*: ‘Campesina from Yanaoca signing the Activities Book of her community’ by *Juan de Dios Choquepuma*. *Centre right*: ‘Police putting down a “March for Life” by feminist organizations in Lima’ by *Rosa Villafuerte*. *Bottom left*: ‘Preparing for confirmation, Mexico’ by *Pilar Gonzales*. *Bottom right*: ‘A project for street kids in Lima’ by *Annie Bungeroth*.
