This is a black and white fine art print of Olga from from the La Chureca series. She’s a poor, teen mother breastfeeding baby son in public. Olga tenderly and lovingly breastfeeds her infant while sitting on a dirt mound in the front yard of her home, within view of the city trash dump in La Chureca, Managua, Nicaragua. Teen mothers are exceedingly common in La Chuerca. Olga and her child were photographed using a Hasselblad 500 CM medium format camera with Kodak Tri-X black and white film. The film was hand-developed and scanned on a top-of-the-line Hasselblad Flextight X5 scanner.
