Photo Essay of the Women of Huaraz, Peru
The marketplace in Huaraz was one of my favorite places. The people were friendly and the exotic sights, sounds and smells will remain imprinted in my memories for years to come. The market was mostly filled with women most of whom were indigenous. Some live and work in the surrounding mountain farms, some live in the city proper but all were dressed in their brightly colored traditional frocks, with layered thick quilted skirts, heavy stockings and tall felt hats. I enjoyed smiling at these women, whom all had a smile in return for me.
