This dissertation examines the photographs of Peruvian photographer Martín Chambi. A successful photographer and celebrated artist during much of his life, Chambi and his work was largely forgotten about since the 1950s and unknown outside of South America. During the 1970s he was rediscovered and his photographs made known to audiences around the world. As a result, new interpretations of him as an artist have emerged which are different from those during his life. The photographs he is known for today are not those he considered his artistic work.
