Heinz Plenge took this picture during a during a yearly held festival by the Quechua people of Inkawasi in Lambayeque (Peru), to promote the value of living culture in Northern Peru in maintaining territorial corridors between different regions.
A nice example is the ancestral planning of the canals connecting the river La Leche with the river Chancay in order to avoid desertification of the area.
The profound gaze of the baby looking directly into the lens of Heinz Plenge attracts the attention as opposed to the alignment of the hats, all pointing into a different direction.
