Photographer's Note

I will take you back to my city of birth now.
This is the Rimac neighborhood in central Lima. This park is the alameda de los deslcalzos, a formerly beautiful park full of marble statues where the upper classes used to stroll down from the 1700s up until the early 1900s. But for the last 70 years the suburban exodus has taken the middle and upper classes away from such places and into modern suburbs, thus leaving these neihgborhoods in neglect.

I hope that these neighborhoods can regain their glory one day.
