Photo and caption by Talia Barreda
I took this photo back in 2005, Iquitos, Peru. This image is part of an essay on malaria and dengue I dis for university. This moment was the only moment i was able to capture joy and happiness in a 3 day trip to Belen, Iquitos. Definetely this photo essay was the hardest to complete. Those 3 days were a solo of heartbreacking images because of the conditions of the hospitals and the conditions people from Belen live in.
