FROM CUSCO TO MACHU PICCHU, PHOTOS BY CARLOS ZAMORA

Camino del inca is a photographic exhibition by Carlos Zamora Vicente with images that cover the whole area from Cusco to Machu Picchu. The exhibition opens on October 2 and is available to the public until October 31 in Aulari II, Sala Transit. The opening ceremony will take place at 12.00h en Salon de Actos (Aulari II) and it will be conducted by Antonio Jimenez Delgado, director of the MA programme Gestion de Edificacion de la EPSA, and Vanesa Tapia, architect and professor of the mentioned MA programme.

The Alicante-born photographer Carlos Zamora exhibits a series of images taken during his journey along the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Lake Titicaca. The artist approaches the concept of heritage as "something present in every corner of that region, in every person we met and in every object we saw". Photography, art, social action, heritage and development are some of the concepts characterizing both his work and his life.

This exhibition is part of a common project involving the investigation group AEDIFICATIO from the Polytechnic School of Alicante (Escuela Politécnica Superior de Alicante) and the REC Association (ASOCIACIÓN REC: Recursos de Educación y Comunicación), in collaboration with the Official College of Construction Engineers and Technical Architects of Alicante (Colegio Oficial de Aparejadores y Arquitectos Técnicos de Alicante), in view of "revitalizing the Hispanic Centre in Cusco".

"The actual state of preservation of the Cusco heritage, along with the living standards in the area have determined us to come up with a project meant to improve aspects connected with social and human development. We see the sustainable management of the cultural heritage as a means of improving people’s lives", state the organizers.
