13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Wool providers of the High Andes

Edited photographer note: A Quechua woman from the village of Qenqo herds the town's llamas, alpacas and sheep home for the night from grazing in the Peruvian highlands. This task is shared by the women of the village, who still dress in traditional Andean textiles all the while hand-spinning wool as they walk.
