Images of Peru and Saudades de Portugal

Jorge Chaves

The reality that is constructed by the census is seldom expressed in the reality of modern daily life. Jorge Chaves discreetly and unassumingly captures daily situations such as boys immersed in a game of marbles, presenting a life which does not reflect Peru’s 54% unemployment. The body of work “Saudades de Portugal” is part of an ongoing project documenting life in Portugal, both sets of images showcasing hidden truth and underlying beauty.
