Florencia Trincheri PHmuseum Limited Edition Print
Florence Goupil, a Peruvian-French photographer. She is currently one of the Explorers for National Geographic Explorer. She began her studies in History of Art at Denis Diderot University in Paris and later went on to study at L'École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, where she graduated in Multimedia and Editorial Design.
Raised in an Andean family, sheltered by the stories of their traditions, but educated in the French school, Florence grew up between two cultures. Hence her deep commitment to issues such as human rights, territory and spirituality in Peru and Latin America.
Her work has been exhibited at the ICP (New York) and published in National Geographic, Polka Magazine, PHmuseum and other international media. In 2020 she has been nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass of Worldpress photo and was awarded a grant by National Geographic Society to carry out a photographic and audio project on native corn and its link to rural farmers in Mexico and Peru. She is currently based in Peru doing a reportage on the COVID-19 situation in an indigenous community, after obtaining the National Geographic Society COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Journalists. For this project, she was recently awarded the 2020 Getty Images Reportage Grant and the Pulitzer Center Rainforest Journalism Found Grant.
This image belongs to the series "Carácter" ("Character"), an ongoing documentary project in which I register the growing process of León and Antonia and how they explore their place in the world. I am an intimate witness of the transformation of two persons since their birth.
