Another stunning photo by @alessandro.cinque, who was featured in our Emerging Photographers series in March, depicting the life of miners in Espinar, Peru. “My work intends to investigate the living conditions of miners and above all the environmental and social impact that this sudden industrialization by foreign multinationals is having in this small country and in the ‘Campesina’ community.’” Check out his full photo essay at in the “Projects” section.

“In the Qayyara Jaddah camp for the displaced, children play with sticks sharpened to points, poking each other whenever possible, wrestle on the dusty streets, and slap each other after insults.
