Challenge: Free Study 2009-02 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR DG IF-ED
Location: Chichir, Cajamarca, Peru
Date: Feb 13, 2009
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/125s
Galleries: Portraiture, Children
Date Uploaded: Feb 20, 2009

I found this beautiful andean little girl in Chichir, a very small and poor village in the northern andean region of Peru. Youngest of 5 children, it was heartbreaking to see how she, despite material limitations, provides love and protection to her only possession: a baby wild cat that she keeps on her back (inside that dark wool blanket). The small scars, under left eye and on left cheek, were made by the cat.

I am trying to find info about her family. Hopefully I could see her again to share this and other images with them.

I know that portraits in general are not the best election for a free study but I really want people to see this angel's face, so it doesn't matter how it does in dpc.

Here an outtake:
