Back in April I headed high into the Andes near Cerro de Pasco to photograph for Hino’s corporate publication. The trip required long days in the car and thin air. Before being granted access to the mine and allowed to shoot, doctors on site ran tests to make sure my brain was getting enough oxygen. Luckily I passed and Mother Nature gave me a beautiful blue sky, sunshine and cotton-like clouds. I traveled and worked alongside two other women, both visiting from Hino’s headquarters in Japan. The miners sure thought we were a motley crew! Some of the images I made were published this month.
