Artist's Description

In August 2007, a major earthquake devastated a number of Peruvian cities, including the city of Pisco.

This photograph was taken approximately three months after the earthquake and shows the remaining wall of the city’s cathedral. Approximately 100 people died when cathedral collapsed during mass and more were injured.

The inscription reads

thank you for the help
and collaboration of the firemen
and international aid in removing 18,000 cubic metres
of rubble and recovering
the bodies of the victims.
two people were brought back to life …

All artist proceeds from sales of this image during 2007 and 2008 will be directed to Hands On Disaster Response

This organisation provides assistance in disaster zones during the initial stages of the emergency. HODR volunteers arrived in Pisco shortly after the earthquake and were there, helping the people of Pisco, Ica, Chincha, Paracas and Cañete til January 2008.
