trujillo, peru

I had the great privilege of traveling last week to Trujillo, Peru to cover a story appearing in the next issue of the Mississippi College Beacon. The Beacon is MC’s alumni magazine, and I’ve been so honored to photograph for such an incredible publication the last couple of years. Our cover story is about a young lady named Grace Greene who started Peru Paper Company. It’s an amazing story, and I hope it will be showcased in the way it deserves to be told in the next Beacon.

I can’t show a whole lot of the images I took as Beacon has first publishing rights, but, here are a few that help give a glimpse in to the fantastic week I had last week. What a great experience…


The Beacon team: me, Tracey Harrison (editor), Marlo Kirkpatrick (writer), and Ethan Milner (videographer)

    My husband has travel to Trujillo twice as a visiting doctor for Peru Mission, which is somehow connected to Peru Paper. He is always impressed by the kindhearted people and delicious food, and can not wait to return! Eventhough I have never been to Trujillo, your lovely photos are so familiar!

    Beautiful. My favorites are the little girl down in the left corner just looking at you…the two women sitting in the ‘shop’ [?] laughing together…and the two little girls down on the ground looking up at you. They are precious! But of course all of the pictures are great!!!

    Well, thank you Cynthia! I’m not sure who Paul is, but I definitely agree, much help is needed in this place. It’s a beautiful country.

    I am completely infatuated with these images. There is something so surreal about them, while at the same time they look so pure and true that I feel like I could reach out my hand and touch the subjects. AMAZING!

    Awesome pics! Even more awesome photographer!

    What beautiful pictures! You “caught” Peru and the people who tugged at my daughter’s heart for the idea and ministry of the cards and ultimately Peru Paper. Thank you.
