Faces of Peru: Photos from a Mother-Daughter Journey

In August of 2015, San Francisco Bay Area photographer and artist Patricia Leeds traveled with her daughter to Peru to celebrate important milestones in life; special birthdays, a graduation and a new job. The two women wanted to connect with the land, culture and people of Peru’s Andes as well as explore the protected Tambopata region of the Amazon Rainforest.  A day spent with the Amaru people, known for their rich and colorful weaving, resulted in these beautiful portraits of traditional life.
