Talk: Peru 1982 with Tony Hutchings
- Date October 14, 2021
- Time 7:30pm - 9:00pm
- Suitable for Everyone
Inspired by last year’s lockdown, professional photographer Tony Hutchings has published a unique collection of photographs taken on his six-month 15,000km journey around Peru in 1982, much of it driving a second-hand VW Beetle. This evening is a must for anyone interested in real photography, motoring and travel, it ticks all the boxes.
Tony became fascinated by Peru after seeing a film about the Andes, reading National Geographic articles and hearing stories from Peruvians living in London. Determined to see for himself, Tony left his London studio and set off with camping equipment, a South America handbook, two Hasselblads and as much Kodak Ektachrome film as he could carry.
‘Peru 1982 ’documents Tony’s incredible adventure, exploring Peru’s cities, villages and some of the remotest parts of the country. He first travelled south from the capital Lima, along the Pan American Highway and up into the high plains above 3500m; then east from Lima to Huancayo and north to Equador, via Ancash, taking in the breathtaking Cordillera Blanca.
The talk will take place in the Napier Room at Brooklands Museum and livestreamed on Youtube.
The Bar will be open from 6pm and hot food will be available.
Parking on-site via the Brooklands Road Campbell Gate
