Of indigenous origin, Martin Chambi (Peru, 1891-1973) dedicated much of his life to photographing the Peruvian Andes, vindicating the pre-Hispanic past through images of Inca ruins and the portrait of the life of the Andean communities in the early 20th century. This way, Chambi incorporated a new perspective into the local photography of the time, proposing a unifying view of Peru and giving light to indigenist discourses that were beginning to gain strength in this territory. Eleven years after Hiram Bingham photographed the Inca citadel Machu Picchu for an exclusive report by National Geographic magazine, Martín Chambi photographed it from his own lens. From this experience, his work enters a different stage where the handling of light, form, space, and texture defined, in addition, by singular angles with a personal aesthetic that make him an emblem of contemporary and documentary photography in Peru and Latin America. The Jan Mulder Collection initiated in 2002 with the aim of promoting photography by contemporary authors, as well as preserving and disseminating historical photography from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Focused on the Latin American context, especially Peruvian, the collection also includes the work of outstanding photographers from the United States, Europe and Asia.
