The extent of that violence is made explicit in images from
the “Fatherland” series, on display side by side with “Virgenes.” The
photographs look inoffensive, even mundane, as in images of empty street corners,
garage doors, and quiet fields at night. But their titles tell a story, like Yessica
C. (Transgender, Survivor, 2010), Tied, beaten, gang-raped by four men and
sodomized with objects—she was left to die on farmland. Pisco, Ica, Peru, 2015.
Or Luis Fernando Vasquez Roque, 26 (Gay, Murdered, 2010), Wrists and ankles
tied to his bed, strangled. He was found dead by his cousin. Calle Las Paltas
3992, Urbanización Naranjal, Lima, Peru, 2015.
