    “This 9" × 11" book chronologically captures a visual journey through Peru, Beginning in Lima, and ending in Cusco, a village located in the Andes mountain region. Traveling from one City to the other, an extreme change in altitude takes place, starting at 50 meters above see level in Lima, ascending to 3,300 in Cusco. The drastic change in altitude induces a host of psychological affects to endure, which, in this case are paralleled to emotional responses. This book intends to recontextualize the words used to describe the psychological effects associated with extremely high altitude and juxtapose them with a visual narrative that evokes an emotional response.”
