The nostalgia

Por: Einar Jiménez Troncoso Todos los derechos reservados. Cusco - Peru



When things change and almost everything is gone the only feeling that remains is nostalgia and decided attitude to protect what is left even with life. In this session our Inca Princess protects her culture, her past, her people, her wounded brother or father with her body, with her life. But at the same time she knows that everything gone is gone... and will never come back again.

The time tunnel


After the spaniards conquered the Inca Empire, incan women were forgotten and sent to a second priority in colonial society (between 1535- 1821). Slowly, like comming out from the tunnel of time, they have been recovering their identity and real value in modern peruvian and world society.

First Story of the Queens

Based upon the Chronicles of Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala
Original Photography : Einar Jiménez Troncoso























Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala, a 16th Century Peruvian chronicler, made drawings depicting Incan nobles and commoners engaged in everyday activities at the request of the Viceroyalty of Francisco de Toledo. In this first shoot, Einar has recreated Guaman Poma's drawing number 120 titled "The First Story of the Inca Queens" depicting the daily life of three sisters, three Inca nobles.

The concept

Women are seen as being synonymous with beauty in most cultures around the world. During the days of the Inca Empire not only were noble women beautiful but they also played a proactive role in society. Contemporary South America has an increasingly important role in world affairs and Latin women are enjoying an even more prolific presence.

The Inca Princess Photo Project is a chance for professional photographers to produce some spectacular open theme material celebrating the beauty and unique nature of South American women. Although women will be the central subjects, the photographer can choose any techniques and/or settings and themes, including those listed below :

  • Historical recreations or re-enactments
  • Indoor shoots or landscapes
  • Nude art, body painting, erotica
  • Fashion and advertising

In the 15th and 16th Centuries the cultural and economic development of the Inca Empire reached its peak. When the Spaniards first arrived they found that local high ranking women were not only extremely beautiful and distinguished but also wielded religious and political power. Peruvian historian Dr. Maria Rostworowski wrote:

”Inca noble women took extreme care with their personal appearance, grooming and dress. Many of these women would have very long straight hair the length of their backs and this extra attention to detail in appearance and dress would distinguish them from commoners. Noble women would be carried on litters by male servants and Fransisco Pizarro, who led the Spanish conquest, was particularly struck by their beauty”.

The objective of the Inca Princess Photo Project is to redefine Andean women and produce images that convey a sense of identity, beauty and dignity, as true of today‘s South American women as of the ancient Incan nobles.
