An intimate portrait of Afro-Ecuadorian women, a minority living in Ecuador. Ecuador and a few other countries in South America aren’t known to have Afro populations. Communities of people of African descent are mostly known to reside in the Caribbean, Brazil, Colombia and the US. However, African descendant people, made it to all corners of the American continent from the North all the way to the South. They even made it to the territories that didn’t even touch the Atlantic.
