In the artist’s own words: “This photo was taken during our hike out of the Ishinca Valley in the Cordillera Blanca in the Northern Andes of Peru. During our expedition we had a camp cook/watchman who was from the small village of Pashpa, which is in the back of the shot. While the language barrier was tough, I was fascinated by their simple yet meaningful way of life. While the females were quite shy with foreigners, they were extremely kind. This woman returns from a day of grazing her family’s livestock. It shows how hard they work day-today and highlights the incredible beauty of the area they call home.”
