DISCLAIMER: SOME OF THESE IMAGES CONTAIN NUDITY AND MAY NOT BE SAFE FOR WORK (NSFW)

Tariana Navas-Nieves, Curator of Hispanic and Native American Art for the Fine Arts Center, gave KRCC a sneak peak of one of the FAC’s latest acquisitions, a gift of six photographs by Peruvian Photographer Diego Lama.

Says Navas-Nieves:

He started as a video artist and then he also started doing photography. The great thing about his work is that he brings together theater and photography. Each one of these is of a historical place of restricted access in Peru. So he takes these photographs of beautiful, dramatic places with really dramatic lighting. And then he incorporates a figure. So when you see them against this backdrop, it really forces the viewer to create your own narrative. The simplicity of the bodies against the really rich backgrounds makes a great contrast.

The large-scale photographs will be unveiled in September at the FAC, but you can watch an audio slide show of the works with commentary by Tariana Navas-Nieves here!
