Maciek Jasik - Lima, Peru

I've been to Lima twice, in 1997 and 1999 and I don't remember as a terribly pleasant city; big, ugly, out of control. Still, I remember even then being taken with certain visual aspects of the place. New York based photographer Maciek Jasik has a fantastic series on the so-called Pueblos Jovenes, hastily built shanty-towns on the outskirts of Lima. Lima's perpetual fog and desert, mountainous landscape give these photos an otherworldly quality, like favelas on Mars. [via Shane Lavalette]
