Ana De Orbegoso is fascinated with the concept of walls. We build walls to create separation, to give privacy, and to protect things. We build personal walls for the same reasons. We want to build barriers between ourselves and the rest of the world. These invisible walls hide our deepest fears and greatest aspirations. Ana De Orbegoso’s photography plays on this theme by capturing people of her hometown Lima, Peru creating invisible walls over their faces with ghostly hands.
