Photographer's Note

Part 2 of my series on La Oroya.

Walking down from the barrio Tupac Amaru into La Oroya Nueva you can see in the close distance the white sided mountains of La Oroya Antigua where the two refineries are positioned. It is said that approximately 97% of the children who live in La Oroya suffer from lead poisoning.

no post processing.
