La Vida de los Ángeles, by Wara Vargas


The origin of the Bolivian Carnival of Oruro can be traced to the ancestral invocations to Pachamama (Mother Earth) and to Tio Supay (the devil).

One of the Carnival dances is the Diablada, led by an angel. That angel embodies purity.

As a child, she was impressed by those dancing figures. She thought they were true angels. Her mother told her that every one of us has a guardian angel. She offered to prove the existence of those angels among us, and to photograph them.

That is how "Life of Angels" was born: from her curiosity to know what was hiding behind those celestial costumes.

 Wara Vargas Lara grew up surrounded by photography thanks to his parents, both artists. He exhibited in his own country and internationally in places like Germany, New York, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina.
