Mountain fields like stairways of stone is a handmade artist book exploring ancient and modern landscapes in Peru and Bolivia. The book draws visual parallels between the practice of hillside crop terracing dating back a thousand years and the more recent phenomenon of massive and informal urban development as a result of 20th century rural to city migrations. I am interested in exploring the continuities and disruptions in human alternations to the landscape as written on the land in South America.
