The images do not change, but the eyes that see them do

2012

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Peru created the Image Bank "Yuyanapaq: To Remember", whose photographs narrate the events that occurred during the internal armed conflict in Peru (1980-2000).

"Images do not change, but the eyes that see them" is a drawing based on a photograph belonging to that visual archive, which addresses the role played by representations within the processes of construction of a collective memory. In turn, the title of this project comes from the speech delivered in the presentation of the aforementioned photographic record.
