Bolivian Mines

as shown in the heartbreaking film ‘The Devil’s Miner’, life as a Bolivian Miner begins at ages you wouldn’t believe.

and usually ends before the miner turns 40.

on the outskirts of Potosi, lies a mountain famed for taking those lives.

a group of us and a guide – a previous miner who managed to escape that lifestyle, took us into the beast.

to deliver gifts to the men inside.

to play with dynamite.

and to pay respects to Tio – The Devil, and guardian of all those who enter.
