Photographer's Note

From my archive.
A woman offers roast meat and potatoes in Taquile, a small island on the Peruvian side of lake Titicaca.
About 2200 people live on the island, which is 5.5 km by 1.6 km in size. The highest point is 4050 metres above sea level and the main village, where the photo was taken, is at 3950 metres.
The economy is based on fishing, terraced farming, horticulture and tourism.
