Belonging to timid local children, these calloused feet followed my friends and I through the remote mountaintop village of Izotalillo in northern El Salvador. Having overcome more than a decade of devastating civil war, villages in this region near the Honduras border have slowly started to create a safer place for future generations to live, farm, and raise families. These sisters' feet, worn but strong, are symbolic portraits of their people's rugged and proud history.
