“Sara, the Spirit of Maize” is a photo documentary series about the Peruvian native corn, known as maize, and its connection with the Quechua elders of the Sacred Valley in Cusco, Peru. The figure of maize is essential for understanding the universe of the children of the altiplano, their relationship with the earth and their identity. Each species and all the sizes, colours and forms of the ear are related to a story, a meaning, a specific use and a curative property.
