Inca Walls, 2019

Stones laid by Incan builders in the former capital of Cusco come to life amid the lively sounds of the city’s contemporary residents and machines. All of the photographs used in the creation of this animation were taken from original Inca walls located in the city of Cusco, specifically those that line the streets Awaqpinta, Pantipata, San Agustin, Maruri, Arequipa, Hatunrumiyoc, Inka Roca, and Ruinas.
