manos de trabajo

Rural Mexican women baking tortillas over a portable oven.

 

Corn tortillas are included with almost every meal in Mexico. The process in which they are made is second nature to many of the people who live in the rural areas.

 

I find this image interesting because it is a simple task, but the nature of the light gives the scene a symbolic, almost religious context.
