Grazda made several trips to Peru in the 1970’s. The pictures he made during those years portray specific aspects and moments of Peruvian life, with beauty and humility. In their fold-out format, many of the page spreads in these two publications present one image and two perspectives. As in Robert Frank’s Peru book from 1948, the order of these photographs doesn’t narrate a fixed story but instead suggests a sensitive and attentive impression of the country and its people.
