Dilmar Gamero has worked with many institutions related to De La Salle Christian Brothers, the Jesuits and Audiovisual and Tourism companies traveling to many countries in South and North America. His primary focus over the last decade has been to explore the cultural and religious identity of Peruvian rituals and festivals, especially in a small village named Paucartambo through its biggest celebration: Mamacha Carmen publishing an illustrated book and preparing a whole body of work that includes printmaking, sculpture, painting and handcraft.
His Ph.D. research is focused on new media narratives about memory, time, and space interacting with rephotography projects, stereoscope techniques, and augmented reality technology.
