In the jungle near Laberinto Island, Peru, Feb. 8, 2007 - A lonely soccer ball sets in the middle of a makeshift soccer field near the gold miner's camp in the jungle of the Madre de Dios. The miners, who work 24-hour shifts, one day on and one off, have little time or energy for recreation. The long hours and grueling work of artisanal mining means the miners spend their day off recuperating and preparing for the next.
