The faces of men and women of the field

This is a subproject derived from my ongoing project called “RURALS”.

I want with this subproject to show the faces of rural workers, men and women, that I have been photographing for about 4 years. In some ways this subproject is like a record for the posterity of what rural workers were like in my adult years.

Unfortunately this is a record of the present times that does not include my time as a child and adolescence. But I will continue on this road in this project until the day my fingers can no longer press the shutter button on my cameras.

Portraits

Antonio Mozeto

“My portraits are a lot more about me than they are about the people I photograph.”
Richard Avedon.
“In portrait photography you can not strip the surface to see the real nature of a person. The surface is all you’ve got. You work with what’s there – what’s waiting to be discovered.”
Richard Avedon in “Avedon at work. In the American West by Laura Wilson “.
“I am going to find what is permanent in this face. Truth comes with fatigue. He displays himself just as he is, just as he did not want to look.”
Irving Penn.
