Taking us into the mysterious world of rituals in Peru, this shaman photo series is both haunting and completely riveting. Capturing the lives and rituals of shamans, healers and spiritual mystics in Lima, Peru, the 'Urban Shamans' series will hypnotize you.

The shaman photo series is the work of Italy-based photographer Andrea Frazzetta. While traveling through Peru the photographer came across the avenue Avenida Tacna -- which is known for its urban mystics who work out of office buildings and shops like any other employee would. The odd urban shamans phenomena caught her attention because of the interesting mix between the age-old traditions and the modern setting.

"Nestled in plain sight throughout the streets of Lima, these generations of shamans and their sometimes shocking ritual practices toe the line between cultural fixture and anomalous spectacle," says Frazzetta.
