FEEDING THE LAMB (COLOR)

from 30.00

I woke up as the sun crept through the window of the Earth made structure I had been resting in. The past three nights were spent staying with a Quechua family in Cuper Bajo. I had experienced a beautiful community working together with the land. I geared up and took down in to the tilled rows of land, when something happened in me that I usually don’t find myself doing. I began asking if I could take people’s photographs. Usually I wait to talk and get to know someone first. However, today was different. I felt as if I had entered a different time period and needed to jump in. Angelo was sitting by his bull while it grazed. He was the first person I approached. Angelo was excited and welcoming to me taking a photograph of him and his beloved bull. The lighting was not the best so I continued traveling on. I found myself down the way in the middle of a field photographing a flock of Ibises eating when I heard a whistle from a distance. Worried I had overstepped my boundaries on the land, look over to see Angelo waving me over. He proceeded to invite me in to his home to photograph the rest of his animals.  Angelo walks me through the small village and through a rustic door made of scrap wood. I enter the dark corridor to an open area with his fenced in sheep. He introduces me to his very sweet wife who was hand feeding the baby lambs. This was an incredibly beautiful experience and another affirmation of the warm spirits that make up South America.
