Peru’s Children – Day 1

No photoshoots scheduled just yet so I look for Peru’s children and young adults out on the streets in the city of Ica. I haven’t done street photography in awhile so it’s a bit of an adjustment here. The field of action is much bigger than the classroom. The kids move quickly from light to dark in the day’s high-contrast lighting. It’s also hard because I’m not aggressive with my potential subjects. It’s different in the classroom – there, the kids and parents have accepted my presence, the kids soon forget I am there and act naturally, so no feelings of hesitation or invading personal space arise. On the street, though, it’s a constant struggle between respecting personal privacy and capturing spontaneous moments (I just don’t have paparazzi blood), as they pop up unexpectedly from anywhere 360 degrees around me.
