solo exhibition by Cissy van der Meer/Amara Photos
Exhibition impressions - Perú ¡Perspectiva!
About Perú ¡Perspectiva!
While living in Peru (2015-2019) I was privileged to experience local life from different perspectives.
Dear friends shared their Lima city life with me, making 'Lima la Gris' colorful and filled with warmth.
Traveling gave me a feel for rural life. I felt at home in the freezing cold highlands as well as in the soaring heat of the Amazon jungle, and everywhere in between.
I am grateful for the opportunity gallery 'Casa de mis Amigos' has given me to share some of the captured memories at this exposition:

Enjoy & Hugs,

Behind the Scenes
First Solo Exhibition in Peru is not Solo at all!
Friends and family helped select the set of photos. Jackie curated the final set "You know, I love them all. Let's make it a solo exhibition, of just your work. And these ones? Big on the main wall at Colonia [her cafe], please'. WOW!
Fotolaser took care of the immaculate colourful prints - perfectly processed by Olinda & Carla. Level hanging - the next challenge - hooray for the help of Marco and Seven (Sunny & Jancko, nope, no laser leveling).
My various WhatsApp supporters - thanks for just reacting with an uplifting '¡Excelente!' when I sent a sneak preview of the very slow work in progress.
A&E, 24/7 stars arranging my Spanglish. Sheila Christensen Jeanneau, an amazing lady who cooked up culinary surprises and knows how to handle CC (Champagne and Cissy), WoW!
So...having a Solo exhibition... did not feel solo at all: Hooray for my international and Lima support tribe 🤩🤩🤩
