Cuzco: “A dream come true”




When Irving Penn was sent to Cuzco for his first fashion assignment on site in 1948, little did he know it would mark an important turning point in his career, and life. Captivated by what he saw, Penn decided not to return to New York, but to stay in the “old and remote heart of America” to photograph its people.

For Penn, who had previously been more inclined to shoot in closed spaces, photographing the people in the streets of Cuzco became a revelatory adventure that would lead to 2000 photographs of residents and visitors from villages nearby. The series became his first set of portraits whose principles would define all following ethnographic portraits he would make in the consecutive 25 years.

Despite the language barrier and a world of differences, Penn managed to merge and convey both, exoticism and everyday life of his subjects who, without words, were able to “span the gulf between our different worlds”.

Cuzco was, as he would go on to describe it, “a dream come true”.

Order & harmony, and the beautiful “in-betweens”

When you visit Luis’s website and look at his photos, chances are you’ll find yourself so engrossed you end up gazing at his entire photo gallery. Luis proves that photography remains an art able to create and convey order and harmony in times of grave visual overstimulation.

Specialized in architecture and interior spaces, he has an eye for geometry, light and color, and the swiftness to capture the beautiful and tender moments or “in-betweens” of their inhabitants.

We have collaborated with Luis in the last season, and are proud of having our AW17/18 collection shot by him again this year.
