When our normal daily life vanishes all out of the sudden against our will because of something falling from sky, or because of a moving plane in the sky. The spirit of that life we had reincarnates in little small details we used to live everyday, and got very used till we took it for granted. These little details become more than a scent of something we had in our past, and a picture wouldn’t only present a moment we captured in time, it recreates that time for us, it becomes alive again, present and constant.

A gold deposit valued at billions of dollars lies just beneath Nelida’s lakes and leads farmers and Latin America’s biggest gold producer into conflict.
