Photos are introduced by historical quotes describing the conditions in which the miners have lived and worked in the mines of Potosí since the sixteenth century. Photos include depictions of men's work in the mines, women's work picking through the slag piles, the ritual relationship that the workers have with the mine, and the devastating effects that work in the mines has on one's health. The photographer's journal provides a peak into his journey.
