This photo shows a tapada limena, or one of the hidden women of Lima. “The women who adopted the primarily street-based fashion embraced its anonymity, which allowed them to engage in flirtations and transgressive intrigues outside the strict restraints of formal society.” Most of these portraits were taken between 1860 and 1870. “The popularity of the veiled tapada as a subject for local photographers were based largely on a voyeuristic appreciation of her ‘exotic otherness’ and a nostalgia for the city’s lost past” 3.75” x 2.25”. $195.
