Cholitas (*w/ signed print*)

@ Blast, Delphine


New product

Presentation by Editions Bessard :    

"The iconic bowler hat, the long black braids, the adjusted corset and the brightly colored puffed skirt: their outfit is well known all around the world. The mythical cholitas are a strong symbol of Bolivia.

Discriminated against for a long time, they are now very much a driving force in Bolivia. In scenes that were unimaginable 10 or 20 years ago, nowadays they have real clout in the economic, political and even fashion worlds. The cholitas have managed to find their place in modern society without denying their collective past. They are an expression of the dignity of indian populations.

This photographic series by Delphine Blast aims to renew insight into Bolivian womanhood. It also carries with it new identity affirmations and reflects the social changes on the march in the country."

The book includes a signed C-Print (16 x 23 cm) inserted at the end.
