LOBITOS, PERÚ
1/2

During the 2017 El Niño in Peru, Lobitos was especially hit hard and cut off from its fresh water supply due to a broken pipe. Yet the oil pipelines remained in full operation, pumping and extracting petroleo back to the refinery and money into the pockets of the corporations. Local kids equipped with cameras, visited the zancudos and documented the machines that suck the fossil fuels up from beyond the Earth's surface. The machines are such a part of their daily lives that the act of taking photos offers an opportunity to stop and question, what's wrong with this picture? An artisanal fishing community occupied by big business that degrades their land and sea only to generate profits abroad and leave this generation to deal with the consequences.
