SOCIAL AND PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT
For the Amazonian Shadows project we joined forces with actors and leaders on the Asháninka community of San Miguel right in the heart of the Peruvian jungle. The Asháninka are spread in between the territories of Peru and Brasil, where we have arrived to document their everyday life and their ancient traditions. The Asháninka community today struggles to preserve their identity as well as the practices that was taught from generation to generation. MUNAY wanted to give the community a chance to show the world these lively traditions and giving them a possibility to get rid of stereotypes and ideas that are not true to reality. We tried to give them the shining spot they deserved and making it easier for them to bring us to an understanding of their everyday life.
