17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
camión de basura frente al cementerio

The photo shows a garbage truck in front of the entrance to a cemetery (cementerio) in the city of Humahuaca in Argentina. The truck just picks up trash from the cemetery. There is an obvious moral, cynical conflict between the cemetery, as the resting place of human bodies, and the disposal of trash.
