Artists Thomas Rousset and Raphael Verona made an epic journey into the heart of South America, to the Altiplano region of Bolivia, for a very special assignment. This was to photograph the magical healers and witch doctors who still populate the area. These mystics represent an enchanting slice of Latin American culture. The resulting images are full of so much colour and whimsical imagery.
