This is a superbly illustrated look at the latest work of photographer Jaime Peruth, whose images juxtapose first-world waste with third-world ingenuity. Jaime Permuth is a Guatemalan photographer living and working in New York City. His latest series of works, entitled Yonkeros, documents "The Iron Triangle" - a small and often overlooked enclave of New York City which is home to dozens of junkyards and scrap metal businesses. The project, entitled "Yonkeros" after the vernacular term that describes businesses that specialize in junk and scrap metal, seeks to document not only the daily lives of the people who live and work in the district, but also the juxtaposition of first-world waste and obsolescence against third-world ingenuity.
