Peruvian photographer Alejandra Orosco spent three months in the alpine village of Bellwald. During this artistic residency, she made a reflection on the less known effects of climate change on the human body. She became interested in stress as a general model of the body’s reaction to the need to adapt to changing conditions.  In her « Symptoms » exhibition, she offers us a series of photos taken under a microscope as well as portraits and landscape photographs, in search of analogies between human and plant organisms and their environment.


Her exhibition will be presented at Centro de la Imagen in Perú from November 17 to December 9.

Opening : November 16, 7pm
