Heddy Honigmann has always anticipated the fast pace of our time. As a contrast to this she provides us with the magic and the intimacy of the moment. Her perspective is deeply humanistic: she celebrates harsh life in all its beauty.
METAL AND MELANCHOLY
Asphalt heroes. Heddy Honigmann climbs on board a taxi in Peru’s capital, Lima, and portrays those who sit behind the wheels of their battered old cars day in day out as a second or third job to escape poverty in a country marked by the financial crisis.
