Trail Erin Wasson’s path through Peru in this exclusive look behind the scenes of our newest catalog…
Magic. If you’re not a believer, you’re really missing out. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you get it. Peru is made of magic, from every single piece of dirt, ancient rock, and human walking the land. The country radiates pure kindness and joy, gratitude and respect. Everything has a soul, and you can feel it.
Our location scout took us through the city of Cuszo, the Maras Fields, natural salt pools (Salinas de Maras) and local weaving workshops. Throughout it all, we were awestruck by the endless color-rich buildings, ancient ruins, inconceivably beautiful mountains and valleys, and sunsets you didn’t think actually existed without filters, all cradling a culture that is indescribably stunning. Thankfully, I grabbed my old film camera right before heading out to document my own intimate moments (shout out to my mom who bought the camera when she was in high school!)… Hello donkeys and llamas! The camera makes a rather significant cameo in the catalog, as Erin shoots a few images from her perspective — raw and unedited — which encapsulate the pure magic of this land and energy.
There was something rather perfect about bringing this camera along for the ride, snapping Peru’s enchanting ancient history with an understanding of storytelling with a heart and past of its own.
