I dreamt I had my portrait taken by Martín Chambi

Last year I saw a great retrospective exhibition of the work of Martin Chambi. I had seen parts of his artistic legacy here and there but nothing had prepared me to be blown away by the gigantic reach of his vision. His enduring images of the Peruvian poor had stayed with me since.
These past few weeks at home have given me the opportunity to play with ideas in self-portraiture, albeit in a smaller scale, and decided to pay homage to such an artist.
