Pre-Elections Lima in Images

04 Jun

Today, armed with my faithful camera, I set out to capture the essence of the contentious battle between Keiko Fujimori and Ollanta Humala, to be decided tomorrow in the second round of Peru’s presidential election. This is what I found:

Propaganda and counter-propaganda

Flyer against Keiko Fujimori

Anti-Keiko sentiment in graffiti

Anti-Humala graffiti

Old lady and Keiko propaganda

Graffiti modified by a Keiko supporter

Boy and propaganda

Ollanta graffiti

Vandalized Fujimori propaganda

Propaganda and counter-propaganda

Derogatory sticker on a lamp post

Billboard featuring a magazine cover

Ollanta posters

  • Wow! Those are really powerful images, Catherine! I ran into an anti-Keiko campaign at the municipal plaza a couple weeks ago and there were some really funny comics of Keiko too! =) I mean, I know they’re supposed to be insulting, but I found them so hilarious! =)

    My favorite one said: “Como no estaba de acuerdo con Montesinos, recibía la platita que él me enviaba. Como no estuve de acerdo con la renuncia por fax, ayudé a elaborar y repartir la carta. Ahora, como no estoy de acuerdo con la corrupción, adivinen qué haré en mi gobierno.” =P
