I clipped this image (by Pieter Hugo) from the nytimes but lost the link to the original article. It may sound cruel to talk merely about a visual form, when the article itself was about the working conditions on a toxic garbage dump. Nevertheless I found this structure very attractive. It reminds me of things I’ve seen in Colombia.. so bare and precarious -and yet, it seems to stubbornly resist.
