Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Tim Latta

Cholitas in Bolivia were know as middle class house cleaners. They were highly discriminated against and not allowed in buses, taxis, restaurants, and some of the main squares of La Paz as recently as 10 years ago. Now they empowered themselves through hard work, pride, and fashion.

Location: San Francisco Square, La Paz, Bolivia
