The Wider Image: Meet the women who scavenge for gold

Men who work as miners walk past a shrine, as they make their way to a gold mine in La Rinconada, the Andes, Peru, October 7, 2019. The shrine is intended to offer protection and security to those entering the mine, because of the dangerous conditions that these men are working in, often risking their lives.
