The Minor Choirs
The Minor Choirs consists in photographing characters from the carnival and popular festivities from the north of Chile and the Bolivian altiplano. These photographs were done on illegal garbage dumps close to the cities where said festivities are celebrated. In this interview with curator Rodolfo Andaur, the author goes into detail about some aspects of this series.
Photographs 5, 12, 14, 17, 19, 20, 24 and 30 were taken in Iquique by Jorge Brantmayer while working on Los Coros Menores (2010), a Fondart Project directed by Demian Schopf. All the other photographs were taken by Demian Schopf in the Bolivian cities of El Alto and Oruro on 2011.
