Batopilas, Mexico. Ink Jet Print, 6 ex. + 1 ap. 83 x 83 cm Batopilas, Mexico, Nov. 27, 1998 When we gave Vicente and Cristina a ride on the mountain track leading to their village, they were coming back from town with their shopping : a 100-liter metal barrel (to make two kitchen stoves once it's cut in half), tools, rope, a can of water and some sugar. They are farmers, growing corn and beans. "Cristina doesn't speak Spanish, except when she's been drinking corn beer," Vicente teases. As for having more children, "Corn is far too expensive to have any more," he protests.
