Justo al cierre de esta edicin, lea un post de un
buen amigo y excelente fotgrafo, Tino Soriano, en
el que mencionaba lo difcil que es vivir de la
fotografa hoy en da, pero que sin embargo, y segn
afirma con toda razn, las experiencias de vida en
este oficio valen ms que cualquier nmina. Y es
cierto, es un oficio muy difcil y arriesgado que ya
no se retribuye tan bien como en la poca de oro de
los magazines, cuando no se escatimaba gastos ni
incentivos por conseguir un Scoop en la portada,
baste con recordar que, en 1964 Paris Match rento,
modific y acondicion uno de los aviones de
pasajeros ms modernos de la poca como sala de
edicin de la revista, para seguir la visita del Papa
Paulo VI a Jerusaln. En esas pocas, ser fotgrafo
de Life, Paris Match o National Geographic, entre
otros, era muy bien recompensado, no slo
profesionalmente sino tambin econmicamente.

El de hoy es un mundo ms globalizado, ms
exigente y comercialmente ms despiadado el que
entre a la fotografa pensando en hacer fortuna,
terminar fotografiando lo que se venda ms fcil, y
por poco dinero, pues lo suyo ser un oficio con
prioridad en el precio de la imagen y no en su valor.
Para vivir de la fotografa primero hay que vivir la
fotografa, sin fronteras y sin salario, ese ha sido, es,
y ser el secreto a voces del buen fotgrafo

Brief on Humanity Photo Awards (HPA)
HPA was founded by China Folklore Photographic Association (CFPA) in 1998. For the
last 16 years, CFPA, in cooperation with the United Nations of Educational, Scientific, and
Cultural Organization (UNESCO), has built this photo contest into a prestigious
international photographic event. Its leading position is unchallenged in the world multi-
cultural field.

Documenting World Folklore Culture by Photography
We have held eight sessions of HPA contests from 1998 to 2014. In total, photographers
from 153 countries have registered for HPA; 16,031 entrants from 137 countries have
entered and submitted entries; folklore phenomena in 167 countries and regions have been
documented. HPA has built a multi-cultural image treasure documenting rich folklore
cultures and their evolution.
Octubre 2014

Sharing Folklore Culture with Photo Stories
HPA is open to group photos only, which sets it apart from all other photo contests. This
rule has been observed strictly for the last 16 years because we believe even a simple
folklore cultural phenomenon can tell a big story and therefore requires a folklore
photographer to focus, investigate and document thoroughly. A single image is insufficient
to tell the whole story. This rule sets a high standard for folklore photographers.

Higher Standard, More Significance and Responsibilities
HPA2013-2021 (from the 8
to the 12
HPA) has been included in the plan of International
Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures (2013-2022). It is a new journey for HPA. Let
world folklore photography be the tool for documenting, promoting and sharing multiple
cultures and thus promoting the prosperity and development of cultural diversity.

Welcome to Enter HPA2015!

Mientras realizaba el presente reportaje a los
Juegos Nacionales de las Olimpiadas
Especiales Per, que se llevaron a cabo del
19 al 22 de Septiembre del presente ao, y
donde participan atletas con habilidades
especiales, fueron muchas las personas que
me pidieron que les tomase una fotografa
durante las competencias, entre las cuales
hay varias que por uno u otro motivo han
quedado grabadas en mi memoria, pero hubo
una en particular que difcilmente voy a

En el primer da de las competencias, dentro
del ambiente en el que se presentaban las
atletas de gimnasia rtmica, aprovechando un
breve receso entre presentaciones; estaba yo
sentado en el suelo, junto a las tribunas con
mi credencial de prensa colgada del cuello,
cambiando los lentes de la cmara para hacer
unas tomas ms abiertas. De pronto apareci
una de las competidoras, se par ante mi y
me pidi que le tomara una foto; yo levant
y acerqu hacia mi rostro el cuerpo de
cmara, desmontado y sin lente alguno, para
explicarle que en ese momento no poda
tomarle una foto, pero al parecer ella
entendi todo lo contrario; acto seguido y sin
mediar palabra, me regal su mejor pose.
Pareca una pose que habra ensayado con
varios das de anticipacin, frente al espejo,
para estrenarla a la primera oportunidad
frente a una cmara durante las
competencias. Inmediatamente despus, y
pensando que yo ya le haba tomado la foto,
me agradeci y dio media vuelta para
marcharse me remordi la conciencia
dejarla ir sin haberle tomado su foto; no, no
poda dejar las cosas as. Como pude puse
el primer lente que tena a mano, sin
configurar los parmetros de la cmara, la
alcanc, y para simplificar explicaciones slo
le dije una ms por favor; ella volte, esta
vez sin posar, y con las manos en los
bolsillos me dio una de las sonrisas ms
naturales que he registrado hasta ahora. La
magia de la espontaneidad estaba en su
rostro, en mi cmara, y ahora tambin est
en la portada de este nmero del magazine.

Queda claro que la mejor y ms artstica de
las poses, no reemplaza a la ms simple y
sincera de las sonrisas. Gracias Sharon!

Cerca del cielo

En las sierras del Valle de Chancay,
cerca de la ciudad de Huaral, al norte
de Lima, y por sobre los 3,400 m.s.n.m. se
ubican las ruinas de Rupac, uno de los
ltimos bastiones del reino de los Atavillos,
una cultura pre-inca que floreci en la zona
entre el 900 y 1400 D.C. hasta que fue
sometida por el imperio del Tahuantinsuyo,
durante el rgimen del inca Pachactec

De esta cultura, llama la atencin lo
particular de su arquitectura; construcciones
cbicas de hasta 10 metros de altura,
edificadas con roca fragmentada sin mayor
amalgama y que curiosamente han resistido
algunos de los mayores terremotos
registrados en la zona, como el de 1746, sin
sufrir mayor dao. Actualmente, si algn
deterioro se observa no es otro que el
producido por el vandalismo y el saqueo.

Estas edificaciones llamadas Cullpis, de
forma cbica, sin ventanas, con techos de
lajas y con slo un pequeo orificio de
acceso en su base, y que al parecer servan
de morada, almacn, cocina y sepulcro
familiar al mismo tiempo, tienen en su
interior un sinnmero de cmaras
abovedadas en diferentes niveles,
comunicadas por intrincados pasajes
subterrneos por los que slo se puede
avanzar rampando.

Es poco lo que se sabe de esta cultura;
lamentablemente la mayora de los restos
arqueolgicos de la zona, estn casi en
situacin de abandono y sufriendo un rpido
deterioro por vandalismo.

Close to the sky

In the highlands of Chancay Valley,
near Huaral city, at the north of
Lima, and 3,400 meters above sea level; are
located the ruins of Rupac, one of the last
bastions of the kingdom of the Atavillos, a
pre-inca culture that flourished in the area
from the year 900 to 1400 A.C. until it was
submitted by the empire of the
Tawantinsuyu, during the rule of the Inca

From this culture, its particular architecture
is interesting; cubic buildings up to 10 meters
high, built of fragmented rock without mortar
which have curiously resisted some of the
biggest earthquakes in the area, like the one
of 1746, without suffering major damage.
Currently, if a deterioration is observed, is no
other that produced by vandalism and

These buildings called Cullpis, cubic shape,
no windows, slab ceilings with only a small
access hole in the base, and apparently
served as a dwelling, store, kitchen and
family tomb at the same time, have in their
inside a number of vaulted chambers on
different levels connected by intricate
underground passages, through which you
can only move forward on all fours.

There is little that is known from this culture;
Unfortunately most of the archeological
remains in the area, are practically
abandoned and deteriorating due to

Sombras, penas y
silencios de Buenos Aires.

La historia del cementerio de
Chacarita, y sus 95 hectreas de
extensin, que lo convierten en el
camposanto ms grande de la ciudad de
Buenos Aires, se remonta al ao 1871 y la
gran peste de fiebre amarilla que sobrepas
la capacidad de inhumacin de los
cementerios existentes. Desde entonces ha
pasado por una serie de etapas en su
historia; clausuras, traslados, ampliaciones y
remodelaciones que finalmente lo han
convertido en la necrpolis ms popular de la

Alberga, este cementerio, a un gran nmero
de personajes populares de la cotidianeidad
bonaerense, tales como Carlos Gardel, Luis
Sandrini y muchos otros ms.

En la zona de mausoleos, la solemnidad de
las fachadas y sus amplias calles
empedradas por las que slo transitan
sombras, penas y silencios, nos dan la
impresin de pasear por el centro financiero
de una ciudad decimonnica en un da
feriado y en la que todos sus habitantes ya
tienen las cuentas saldadas. Grandes
panteones, aqu y all, completan la
escenografa cual sedes legislativas donde la
ltima sentencia ya ha sido pronunciada;
Requiestcat in pace.

Shadows, sorrow and
silence of Buenos Aires.

The history of the Chacarita
cemetery, and its 95 hectares that
makes it the largest cemetery in the city of
Buenos Aires, goes back to 1871 and the
great plague of yellow fever which surpassed
the burial capacity of existing cemeteries.
Since then it has gone through a number of
stages in its history; closures, relocations,
expansions and renovations that eventually
turned it into the most popular necropolis of
the city.

A large number of popular characters of the
Buenos Aires daily life such as Carlos
Gardel, Luis Sandrini and many others are
buried, in this cemetery.

In the area of mausoleums, the solemnity of
the facades and spacious cobbled streets,
where only use to walk shadows, sorrow and
silence, give us the impression of walking
through the business center of a nineteenth-
century city on a holiday and in which all its
inhabitants have the balanced accounts.
Large vaults, here and there, complete the
scenery as legislative buildings in which the
last sentence has already been pronounced;
"Requiestcat in pace."
