Portraits

Sep 19, 2022 - Miguel Mira

The portraits in this series depict a population of often marginalized characters whose lives are linked to the rural agricultural sector. The images highlight the wear and tear of physical labor that ages the inhabitants of these communities.
Through the honest rawness of the subjects, this project illuminates a beauty not often linked to the working class. La Romana captures a lifestyle that reflects this small town’s identity and its close-knit community.
