Returning to La Paz‘ is an hommage to Javier Molina’s birth place.  After living in the USA for a number of years the Bolivian photographer returned to La Paz in the early 1970s. Living abroad gave him a perspective that allowed him to see the city with new eyes.

Achachila Mayor: el Illimani

Achachila: To locals, the high mountain peaks are more than just breathtaking natural phenomena. Known as achachilas in Aymara and apus in Quechua, they’re also considered living beings inhabited by powerful spirits. As controllers of weather and the source of vital irrigation water, these mountain gods must be appeased with constant offerings and worship, since if angered they’re liable to send hailstorms, frost or drought to destroy crops.

El Angel del Gran Poder

The yearly celebration of Jesus del Gran Poder gathers over 40,000 participants/dancers every year in May/June in La Paz, Bolivia. It is now considered part of UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage.  I have published a book about this celebration and you can view the digital version here: Gran Poder
