- Thought-provoking and disturbing in equal measure, this book is guaranteed to move the reader
Over 15,000 Peruvians disappeared. More than 60,000 were mercilessly killed. These are individuals who Jonathan Moller will not allow us to forget.
We are introduced to the victims of Peru once again, through his stark and raw photography, as Moller trawls this country in search of answers. Where have the missing gone? Can so many thousands of people be hidden? What do they do when they feel cold? Where do they find shelter? What do they eat when they are hungry? By humanising those who have been lost, Moller’s photography unearths a new dimension to this tragedy.
