Audience Unmasked

Your Shot member Austin Beahm, a Latin American geography lecturer, uses photography to connect students to the beauty of the region he loves. Here, young folk dancers are juxtaposed with older onlookers at the four-day Señor de Choquekillca festival in the Andean town of Ollantaytambo, Peru. “While they are separated by two generations or even more, they still share the cohesive bond of tradition so common to villages in the Andes,” Beahm writes.
