As part of the Global Pursuit, PoP visits Lima, Peru to host “Pursuit in Lima" in partnership with Igers Peru. This was PoP’s first time in Peru! The meet that was facilitated by local creatives drew over 150 attendees on Saturday, August 11th in Barranco.

“Fueled by a desire to embrace diversity and celebrate inclusivity, The Global Pursuit has used social media and digital influence to positively impact and support all races and cultures, minorities, gender equality, the LGBTQ community, and all lifestyles, through the Pursuit of Portraits platforms” says Saunak Shah, Founder of Pursuit of Portraits. He adds, “there’s nothing more gratifying than planning up to a meet-up and seeing hundreds of locals share the same enthusiasm as you. So many who’ve never attended an event where they can create alongside others that they’ve been inspired by for years. And to see the range in ages all from the teens well into the 40s or even 50s on occasion is what truly showcases the impact of such community driven initiatives”.
