Must Have photography book.... "Antik Batik Peru"

Founder and designer of Antik Batik, Gabriella Cortese and photoghrapher Thierry Le Gouès traveled to Peru, to capture the Autumn-Winter 2010/2011 collection.

They chose a beautiful, but also very contrasting scenery: the mountains of Cuzco and the rivers of Lake Titicaca.
Rich and elaborated clothes.... in a poor, rural setting.

This resulted not only in stunning fashion photography, but also in an emotional coverage of the living conditions of the Peruvian people.

Profits from the sale of the book and prints from the exhibition (which took place during French fashion week, 28/09 to 07/10) will go to the inhabitants of villages damaged by the floods of January 2010. The association who is going to manage those profits is Plan International.
