Photographer's Note

Machu Picchu was discovered by the historian Hiram Bingham by accident when he stumbled upon it on 24 July 1911. Over 50 burial sites were discovered here most of which contained female remains, and it is said the Machu Picchu must once have been an important ceremonial centre.
