Marina García Burgos studied photography at the International Center of Photography in Nueva York and at the Central Saint Martin's School in London. For years she has dedicated herself to doing advertising work from her own studio, where she has also has worked on campaigns for Amnesty International, W.W.F., and P.N.U.D. She is currently collaborating with the Peruvian Team of Forensic Anthropology (EPAF) and founded a non-profit organization, COLECTIVO DESVELA. The inaugural project of DESVELA consisted in involving family members of those who disappeared during the years of military conflict in Peru in the creation of a collective patchwork, having every member weave a piece of a chalina (scarf), and then unifying the parts into a great scarf. The project was called "La chalina de la Esperanza" ("the Scarf of Hope") and was presented in Lima after a year and a half of labor that included families from Ayacucho, Chimbote, Lima, Trujillo, Arequipa, Junin, and Puno.
