black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

Procession of el Señor de los Temblores (Lord of the earthquakes) in Cusco
During the Semana Santa (holy week) this is one of the most important events in Cusco. According to legend, the effigy of a Jesus on a cross was able to stop an earthquake in 1650 which threatened to destroy the city. Legend also has it that this wooden effigy was originally white but miraculously changed its colour suddenly to black. A more plausible explanation claims that centuries of exposure to smoke from burning candles inside the church caused the black appearence.
