Scenes from the Peruvian Amazon

Tribal quest

The Photographer’s Story

After a 12-hour bus ride from Lima, through the dramatic mountain passes of the Andes, I arrived in a busy market town called San Martín de Pangoa. Situated in the Central Amazon, just east of the Andes, Pangoa is described as ‘the pantry of Peru’. With its nutrient-rich soil, humidity and rainfall, it has the perfect conditions for growing crops. Cacao, potatoes, pineapples and yucca are all grown here, but it was their most prolifc crop, coffee, for which I had made the journey. I was commissioned by Taylors of Harrogate to document the captivating story, and the equally captivating people, behind their Peruvian coffee. Our trip culminated 1,500m above San Martín de Pangoa, in the remote village of the Asháninka people.
