A few days ago one of my good clients and friends, Jose Antonio sent me a photojournalism piece he put together on the recent uprising by the new young generation in Peru. I was unaware of the events transpiring in Peru as none of this received any coverage here in Australia on either our prime time news or radio (unless I managed to missed it). It is not very often I share something like this that falls outside of the Nature genre of photography, but Jose’s piece is truly outstanding and worth a few minutes of your day to read and absorb.
A New Generation Rises Up
In the second week of November, young people in Peru took massively to the streets to protest against the latest outrage by the countries political class. This was a new style of demonstrating by a previously apolitical generation. The atmosphere was creative, non violent and festive. After five days of marching the new generation forced the political class to retreat. They had achieved their goals.
