UCHURACCAY

Between the years 1980 and 2000, Peru experienced the worst internal armed conflict in its republican history. At the foot of the Apu Razuhuillca, eight journalists and their guide were killed on January 26, 1983 at the hands of local settlers; however, little is known about the 135 peasants of Uchuraccay killed iduring months and years by Sendero Luminoso and the Armed Forces. Franz Krajnik proposes, with this documentary photographic essay, to explore the pain of absence in Uchuraccay from a personal and sincere vision. The author presents a look in which it is not possible to separate the pain that invades the inhabitants of this place; however, this environment has been given a new meaning to everyday life. There is a sense of common work, struggle, and love among the villagers that drives the development of their community. Today, the community of Uchuraccay rises from the ashes to tell how it coexists with pain.
