Gang Member Lima

Finn Byrum
Denmark

Nominee

"Gang Member Lima"
Slum area in Lima, Peru. This gang members told me about the drug war, inside the slum area- the many many fights he has been a part of - including been shot three times by the police.

Biography: Finn Byrum is a professional photographer that has visited more than 42 countries around the world - on different photo-assignments - and has had the opportunity to meet a lot of beautiful people. He works on photo-assignments and projects - for national and international humanitarian and development organizations. For Finn, life and the world rushes by. So it makes sense to stop for a second and freeze the moment using his camera - a kind of digital meditation - providing time and substance for reflection.
