The color of the Andes

11 months, 3 weeks

Inca descendants have successfully preserved many of their traditions and weaving threads is one of them. If you go to Peru, you’ll see color everywhere. They create stunning varieties of natural colors by using different dyes made out of the plant life found in the Andes. The art of weaving has been passed down through generations, the girl in the photograph has learned how to weave from her mother, and creates beautiful handmade products.

The leading lines created from the threads to your character are spot on! The light is gorgeous and soft while she concentrates on her craft. Beautiful environmental portrait, Daniella!
