River Claure (1997) is a Bolivian visual artist and photographer based in Spain. He questions the representation of Bolivian identity within the international gaze and builds scenarios around cultural juxtapositions of western and global south culture.
The Warawar Wawa project, ‘Son of the Stars’ in the Aymara language, is a series of photographs that proposes an alternative Bolivian identity while being conscious of the western footprint in Bolivia’s culture. He invites us to look at this fantastic universe of the coexistence of both cultural influences.
