La Cienega: Ecuador’s Childless Village

Santiago Arcos Veintimilla is an Ecuador-based photographer who was chosen this year for a Magnum Foundation Human Rights Fellowship.

His photo essay documenting La Cienega, a village in Ecuador without any children, appeared in the Fall 2013 edition of the World Policy Journal.

In this audio slide show, Mr. Veintimilla explains what drew him to photograph La Cienega, and why the remaining residents choose to stay despite the fact that “something terribly sad is happening there.”
