The water tanks of Lajas Bolivia May 3, 2011
Lajas is a small remote Bolivian village where the people live simply and close to the land. Water access has always been a challenge so collectively they decided to change that. With help from the local municipality and Water for People they were able to raise the funds and build beautiful blue water tanks that serve the households. When we saw these tanks from a distance we knew that would be the visual thread for the still and motion images we were creating for the annual report. With that in mind, I set out to create a series of portraits and stories with those beautiful blue tank playing the supporting role.
