Martín Chambi

Peru

Peruvian photography giant Martín Chambi (b. 1891 – d. 1973) was one of the first major indigenous Latin American photographers and is considered one of the most influential and important artists that South America has ever had. An unparalleled portraitist, Chambi was the first person to sell his images as postcards in Peru, a format he pioneered, and his work is recognised for its profound historical and documentary value.
