Photographer Spotlight: Amaury Barrera

A selection of photos from “T l a o l i” by photographer Amaury Barrera, capturing the ancient practice of cultivating corn and the indigenous community in Sierra Juárez, Oaxaca who are faced with “transgenic grains that are making the soil sick, rendering the land sterile and affecting the health of people.” They’re not just working for the preservation of the native species of corn but also “for the memory of their ancestors, for their communal and cosmic identity, for life itself.”
