About the artwork

Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary, this is Mexican photographer Alfredo Sanchez?s modus operandi. In this collection Roots & Wheat , he showcases roots, soil, plants, and more broadly, life itself. The shoot was produced in Mexico in 2019 and required incredible teamwork.
