Talk/Slide show: Photographer Hector Emanuel

As he grew up in Lima, Peruvian-born photographer Hector Emanuel regarded Lake Titicaca, which straddles the Peruvian-Bolivian border high in the Andes, as a timeless, almost mythical place. More recently, he's made six extended trips to the lake to record the festivals and daily lives of the Aymara and Quechua peoples living on the shores--and to connect with the spirit of his great-great-grandfather Carlos, a photographer and musician who lived by Lake Titicaca in the late nineteenth century. Emanuel will discuss his Lake Titicaca project and other work, including his coverage of the Colombian civil war, which has earned him awards from the National Press Photographers Association and the World Press Photo Foundation.
