Photographer's Note

Women young and old flock to the small market at Ollyantambo to sell "traditional" handcrafts and goods, both of which can be disputed. International tourism has brought a lot of ugliness to the this community. For the sake of tourists, man of these women dress up in traditional clothing just so they can get money for being a model. Pictured here, an elderly woman is selling bottled water and cloth carriers.
