Behind paradise
Project info

When I was visiting Peru, I went to all the highlights of the country, like every other tourist did. But when I was in the oasis Huacachina, nearby Ica, I mentioned this desert village. The first day I saw it from a distance while we were on a buggy tour to go sand boarding. I became curious and planned to go visit the village. When I came there, it felt like I didn't belong there. It felt empty, the only people I saw where children. It was such a big contrast with the oasis, which felt more and more like it was built for the tourists.
