James Chororos studied architecture, painting, graphic design, art history and engineering before stumbling across photography and finding that this was in fact the medium he felt most comfortable with – and boy, are we glad he did. It’s not every day you come across a photographer with as keen an eye for landscapes as for tiny, missable details.
The series Peru, which was born of a trip to South America, combines vast mountainous ranges with quirky portraits and tiny flashes of red to create a collection of images which is aesthetically coherent and awe-inspiring. I especially love the portrait of the old local woman in her wide-brimmed hat and red cardi – what a snazzy ensemble.
