Misk’i Kachi Runakuna / Sweet Salt People / Gente de Sal Dulce presents Laurence Salzmann’s extraordinary work from Cusco’s Sacred Valley, reflecting his immersive and collaborative approach to the photography of everyday life.

Laurence Salzmann is a particular kind of documentary photographer: not the sort who thinks himself to be some kind of value-neutral observer, not the kind who esteems himself as an outside expert or purveyor-from-above, also not the kind who understands himself to be a romantic adventurer. Rather Salzmann is the kind of documentary photographer who sets out to learn from and not just about those he photographs, and who is genuinely humble toward his tasks as an artist—humble in the beginning and more humble at the end of a project. He stands not over his subjects but resolutely in their midst.

Laurence Salzmann es un tipo particular de fotógrafo documental: no del tipo que piensa que es una especie de observador neutral en cuanto a valores, no del tipo que se estima a sí mismo como un experto externo o proveedor desde arriba, tampoco del tipo que se comprende a sí mismo como un aventurero romántico. Más bien, Salzmann es el tipo de fotógrafo documental que se propone aprender de aquellos que fotografía y no solo de ellos, y que es genuinamente humilde hacia sus tareas como artista: humilde desde el principio y más humilde al final de un proyecto. No separa sobre sus súbditos, sino esta resueltamente en medio de ellos.
- Jason Francisco, 2021
