ESPAÑOL: El concepto

Las mujeres son vistas como sinónimo de belleza en muchas culturas del Mundo. Durante los días del Imperio Inca, las mujeres de la nobleza no fueron solamente hermosas, también tuvieron un papel proactivo en la sociedad. La América Latina contemporánea tiene un rol más importante en el mundo, y las mujeres de nuestro continente tienen una presencia cada vez más decesiva.

El proyecto Princesa Inca está pensado para fotógrafos profesionales que deseen producir imágenes espectaculares celebrando la belleza y la naturaleza única de las mujeres sudamericanas. Teniendo a las mujeres como personajes centrales, los fotógrafos pueden escoger cualquier tipo de técnica, locación o tema, como los siguientes:

  • Recreaciones históricas
  • Fotografía de interiores o paisajes
  • Desnudo artístico, body paint
  • Fashion y publicidad

Si eres un fotógrafo profesional y deseas producir una sesión de fotos para IncaPrincess.org, puedes escribirnos a fotografia@cusco.net.

 

ENGLISH: The concept

Women are seen as being synonymous with beauty in most cultures around the world. During the days of the Inca Empire not only were noble women beautiful but they also played a proactive role in society. Contemporary South America has an increasingly important role in world affairs and Latin women are enjoying an even more prolific presence.

The Inca Princess Photo Project is a chance for professional photographers to produce some spectacular open theme material celebrating the beauty and unique nature of South American women. Although women will be the central subjects, the photographer can choose any techniques and/or settings and themes, including those listed below :

  • Historical recreations or re-enactments
  • Indoor shoots or landscapes
  • Nude art, body painting
  • Fashion and advertising

If you are a professional photographer and want to produce a photo session at IncaPrincess.org, feel free to email us at fotografia@cusco.net

In the 15th and 16th Centuries the cultural and economic development of the Inca Empire reached its peak. When the Spaniards first arrived they found that local high ranking women were not only extremely beautiful and distinguished but also wielded religious and political power. Peruvian historian Dr. Maria Rostworowski wrote:

”Inca noble women took extreme care with their personal appearance, grooming and dress. Many of these women would have very long straight hair the length of their backs and this extra attention to detail in appearance and dress would distinguish them from commoners. Noble women would be carried on litters by male servants and Francisco Pizarro, who led the Spanish conquest, was particularly struck by their beauty”.

The objective of the Inca Princess Photo Project is to redefine Andean women and produce images that convey a sense of identity, beauty and dignity, as true of today‘s South American women as of the ancient Incan nobles.
