About this image

This photograph was taken on a remote road in Vilcabamba, on my way back from documenting the páramos in Ecuador. I was completely exhausted but could not pass up this odd juxtaposition of nature and culture. (Linhof Technikarden 45, Rodenstock 135mm Apo-Sironar-S lens, transparency film)
