My Grandparents' House Huanuco-Peru, 1999 © Chionmang

Color copy on 150 x 120 cms. Duraflex

"At about eleven o'clock in the morning, at the intersection between calle 28 de Julio and Ayacucho, I placed the box in the middle of the road and the camera on the tripod, inside the store in front of my grandparents' house. Zdenka was in charge of obturar and my mother cleared the area from people who were inside the frame. We started the takes and cars, microbuses and motorbikes passed through during the process. It took us about 20 minutes to take this photograph. Not surprisingly enough, no one asked anything, they just laughed and whispered among themselves about what was happening before there eyes"
