Senior Exhibition 2011: Hannah Porst

Porst’s photography is inspired by her junior-year stay with the Q’eros people of the Peruvian Andes, a group designated a “national living cultural patrimony” for the continuity of its ancient traditions. In her images, Porst seeks to convey “the love, joy, perseverance and intrinsic integrity that suffuse [the Q'eros'] individual personalities and cultural character.”

Porst has received a 2011 Davis Project for Peace award to help build the first primary school in the Q’eros village of Ch’allmachimpana this summer.
