Photo journal: Afro-Bolivian family
Alejandro Iriondo

This is one of six photo journals published as part of the BBC's Future Family week, exploring the changing nature of family life.

Alejandro Iriondo is a smallholder in Chijichpa, a village in Bolivia's sub-tropical Yungas region.

He works seven days a week to put his children through school. The family is Afro-Bolivian, descended from slaves.

"I've tried hard to bring my family together. I am closer with my children than I was with my parents," he says.
