Perched at 4,330 meters (14,210 feet) above sea level, Cerro de Pasco in central Peru stands among the highest cities in the world. It is also one of the most polluted.

Traces of lead in the sediments at the bottom of nearby Lake Llamacocha indicate that the Wari Empire mined and smelted silver here as early as 600 A.D. When Incan and Spanish empires controlled the city in later centuries, Cerro de Pasco continued to be a major source of silver, copper, zinc, and other metals.

For much of the city’s history, miners worked in hundreds of small-scale silver mines scattered widely in caverns and underground tunnels throughout the area. By the 1950s, most of the small mines had been closed and replaced by large open-pit mines, including one near the center of the city.

They were not the pretty pictures of "willows by the river or beeches in the fog" that he was after, but rather the landscapes of a world violently "disturbed" by man.
