The Land of the Incas

The Land of the Incas

Book - 1986
Rate this:
The Inca empire at its height stretched down the Andes for well over a thousand miles. Hans Silvester has toured its length, photographing surviving remnants of the Inca way of life, capturing the harsh beauty of the mountain landscapes. The magnificent stonemasonry and roads of the Incas frame their modern descendants, who still cultivate the terraces built by their ancestors; maintaining their own eclectic culture and religion, and struggling to find a place in the cities of six South American states.
