    Gold in Editorial/Environmental, 1st place winner in Editorial

At 4090 meters above sea level, in Bolivia, in the middle of Andes, there are thousands of people living close to mine entrances. Cold, rain, snow and a lot of dust and loneliness. Families who live of mines works. Solitary worlds at 4090 meters above sea level.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
