    The cockfight is part of the culture of many countries in the world, being forbidden in most of them. Before the fighting the animals are treated like kings while the people struggle to survive in the middle of a very simple life. Different generations and their different reactions during a cultural cockfight. Chavin de Huantar, Ancash, Peru

    This image made our final curation of the Close Encounters story. While for some this image does show harm happening to animals, I think it reveals that different cultures have different perspectives on events and moments. What really struck me here were the onlookers behind the fence. The young children that are looking away, the concern on the faces of the adults and the young man that is filming this moment on his mobile phone. Perhaps viewing this event will bring on change.
