Heidi Kana Emidy: Multifacted Photographer
Hanging on the walls of a modest San Diego restaurant, the Nazca Grill, is a collection of images taken by photographer Heidi Kana Emidy. Emidy, born in Tupper Lake, New York, raised in Argentina, Brazil and Peru and graduated from high school in San Diego, has been a photographer for most of her life. Image Heidi lives a portion of the year in San Diego, where she devotes herself to her work as a holistic healer, and where she assembles videos of her images from mountain villages and remote locations in Peru. Emidy has used her camera in Peru to document her work with the village of Challabamba east of the mountain city of Cusco as she works with a Padre Mateo, the priest of the local church. and members of the village hierarchy to build, staff and sustain an orphanage. Over the years Heidi has traveled up and down the three regions of Peru, la cordillera, la costa and la selva, photographing stunning landscapes, Inca ruins and remote Quechua villages. Capturing smiling faces of little children has never been a problem, nor has it been difficult for Spanish speaking Heidi to gain the confidence of the women in the villages as she photographs them at work spinning, dying and weaving their colorful blankets and serapes on their "back strap" looms. Watch a male weaver at work at the Center for Traditional Textiles in Cuzco. Emidy has acted as translator, photographer and medical assistant in bringing medical care to remote villages. She saw a need and opportunity to change the way villages used their limited supply of wood for fuel. Through the darkness of the first night of a visit with a medical team to the village of Pucallpa in the Tarapoto region in northern Peru she heard the cries of a small child in pain. The next morning she found the child in a hut with severe burns to the upper part of his body. He had been burned by an open fire. She and the medical team cared for the child for several days before moving on, but not before Heidi saw a way to prevent similar injuries to villagers, adults and children alike.
