Thou shalt eat thy bread in the sweat of thy brow...to me it is true humanity and great poetry. (Jean-François Millet) This project is about Gauchos of the the Calchaquí Valleys one of the sacred valleys of the American Continent at the Province of Salta, at the North West of the Argentina, aims to create a visual document on a culture and their long standing traditions. These people represent one of the most authentic Argentina subcultures. This is a homage to those who no fanfare salutes, but with their bones they sowed the Argentine homeland.
