To uproot (someone) from their natural geographical, social, or cultural environment.


Deracination is a photographic project that follows the traces of nomadic shepherds during their stay in the locality of Manchay, in Peru.

They travel around the country with their families and cattle, searching for the vegetation that grows in the dessert when the fog comes along during the winter.


The project talks about people, a locality and even nature that is temporal and in constant change.
