Luana Pachas
Since her early youth, born and raised in Uruguay, she knew she would dedicate herself to art. Photography came into her life when she was 10 years old and from that moment on she hasn’t stopped. Her passion grew even more when she learned about analog photography which quickly became her area of preference for creating images. Her family history is what brought her to Cusco and once she stepped foot here, she knew it was where she wanted to live. Her curiosity eventually led her to the jungle and with that same impulse, in getting to know Xapiri Ground. Upon her visit to our physical location, she felt a great need to learn more about the Amazon and its indigenous communities. She is now part of the Xapiri Ground team where she is barista and host.
