A PLACE CALLED LLOYD

A dusty, stripped down airplane engine sits atop a wheeled yellow metal frame in a storage room. Empty metal shelves line the wall to the right, and another airplane component sits on another yellow frame to the left. On the floor in front of the engine, a large peeling red and white sticker reads 'SALIDA EXIT' with an arrow pointing forwards. Half out of frame, a man in blue overalls and a red cap sweeps the floor.

When Lloyd Aereo Boliviano, one of the world’s oldest airlines, went bankrupt in 2008, many of the employees decided to continue working without a salary. Seven years later, they still check life vests, stitch covers for plane seats and manage their books despite their planes remaining grounded.
