Working with ancestral techniques, a man walks the freshly-plowed furrows, planting his field of corn. Around him, golden maize awaits harvest on tall emerald stalks. "I watched this gentleman at work and I realized that we'd have no vegetables or fruits without our farmers. This portrait honors them and their importance in society," artist Juan Carlos Moreno explains. Recycling dried corn husks, he dyes the natural fibers and mounts the composition on card stock. A coat of resin protects the images, which are presented in a mat board passe-partout.
