The Game - El Juncal, to Stern and AFP 1998-2006
A north Andean town in Ecuador, with a majority black population, was finally acknowledged thanks to the National Soccer Selection that participated in the 2002 World Cup. Here is the principal seed bed where close to a hundred children seek here the traces of the first division soccer team. 

In the town of Juncal, 100 km. north of Quito, the small soccer players, in addition to going to school, from a young age work drying grains and taking the cows to pasture under an embracing sun.  Such activities are characteristic of this fertile valley named “El Chota” where one has the option of becoming an agriculturalist or a soccer player.

In the middle of the dusty, narrow streets, children without shoes or with shoes cut out in the back, play out their dreams with a soccer net and goal markers in imitation of the main idols who not long ago were their neighbours or relatives or members of their block.

Afternoons are pure soccer. Filled with soccer stories, they move towards the main field of the town, “la Playa”, under the bridge where the Panamerican highway crosses. 

From three in the afternoon they play on the edge of the Chota river that serves as a natural bath since they can throw themselves in after the game, along the large rocks where in the morning their mothers wash their clothes and kitchenware as there is little potable water in the town.  This is the rhythym of life in Juncal having become a key place for Ecuadorian soccer.

Child Boxers, to AFP, Quito - Lima - 1999-2001
Fuji film 400 ISO - Digital
Blood, sweat and tears are the ingredients of the small athletes who create their dreams in the boxing schools of Peru and Ecuador. 

Around a hundred children between the ages of 10 and 14 visit gymnasiums daily in lower-class neighbourhoods.  The majority of gymnasiums have become a shelter for children with few economic resources.

A former boxing champion teaches his students in their tender years. The best age to begin the carrer as a pugilist is 10 years old.  Training begins in the afternoons after many hours of work, some of them carrying sacks of potatoes to the market in Lima and Quito, others selling sweets in the streets, or having left school, they come to box, the only path to a better future where they live.

Los Ladrillos de Barro- Lima - 2009

The Ice carriers of Chimborazo, to Spiegel (DE) Ecuador - 2002
Tri-X , Blanco y Negro Forzado.

​​The extraction of ice from the peak of Chimborazo, the highest snow-peak in Ecuador at 6,310 meters, is a difficult work in the inter-Andean zone where indigenous peoples keep alive a tradition that is hundreds of years old. 

Gregorio, Juan and Baltasar, three brothers from the Uhnta family, that according to them, is the only family to dedicate itself to go in search of the sacred ice of Chimborazo twice a week, later selling it as a means of subsistence.

Usually they ascend Chimborazo Thursdays and Fridays in order to sell the blocks of ice in the Saturday market, principally in Riobamba, the provincial capital at the base of the mountain.  The ice is used to cool drinks and to make popular hand-made ice cream. 

The ascent, that lasts some four hours, is interrupted half-way through by “ichu” straw (“paja”), that they gather to make rope that they will use to move the ice. 

Upon arriving at the quarry after having climbed at least 4500 metres,  they work to uncover the glaciers with picks and shovels. Frozen walls are shaped into rectangular blocks that can have particles of volcanic ash and rock. Once the rectangular blocks are wrapped in straw, they are tied to mules.  The descent begins in the mid-afternoon and takes some two hours.

Upon arriving at their homes, the ice is placee in some holes in the earth so that it maintains as much volume as possible until the moment of sale in the Riobamba market.
