  • About the work

Since the 1970s, Silva-Meinel's work has concentrated on the indigenous populations of Peru’s Sierra and Amazon regions. The religious and mystical aspects of their lives, as well as the sacredness of their practices and the role that indigenous culture plays in Peru fascinate him. Hel shoots exclusively in black and white. His pictures are richly cultural and luminous. In them lies a juxtaposition of time, as he often places his indigenous subjects ironically against a contemporary backdrop in his studio.

About the Artist

1949 , Peru

Javier Silva Meinel (b. 1949 in Peru) is one of the best known South American artist. During 45 years of his photographer's career he developed his own way of understanding photography. He gives us the picture but between an image and saved reality he leaves a gap which must be filled by the viewer. It is a tangle of people and objects piled up in that reality and saved using a photocamera. This makes his photographs grotesque and mysterious, uncertain and intriguing.
