"Us & Them, Zapatista #1"
Shot in the Zapatista compound Oventic in Chiapas Mexico, with the "Us & Them " 4"x5" camera.

The red floating script "words from the heart" is hand written by the gentleman in the photo. I ask everyone I photograph for the "Us & Them" project to write something from their heart.
He wrote, "Brothers from the fighting world together for a good life, justice and democracy and liberty."

"Zapatista #1" is a 48"x60" gelatin silver print in a steel frame.
The image is made from 9 sheets of 16"x20" gelatin silver paper, toned with traditional chemistry, Zapatista coffee and local cactus, with 5 gallons of acrylic resin poured over the top of the print.
