Guarding the Flock
Photograph by Mattias Klum

A boy cares for his family's goats in the mountains. When the weather turns warmer, boys are sent into the hills with livestock to find pasture for the herds. They also collect the animal dung, which will be burned as fuel during the long winter to follow.
