A hunter-gatherer is a human living in a society in which most or all food is obtained by foraging (collecting wild plants and pursuing wild animals), in contrast to agricultural societies, which rely mainly on domesticated species.
The idea was born from the concern of the good nutrition and proper health of the Taiwanese.
Hunting and gathering was humanity’s first and most successful adaptation, occupying at least 90 percent of human history. Following the invention of agriculture, hunter-gatherers who did not change have been displaced or conquered by farming or pastoralist groups in most parts of the world.
Only a few contemporary societies are classified as hunter-gatherers, and many supplement their foraging activity with horticulture or keeping animals.
This Collection of fruits and vegetals hanging from a little cord with a simple white background in black and white was inspired by the idea that came one day I decide to build my own orchard, I start learning a lot about plants and everything about growing them. some of the fruits and vegetals you see on the Gallery are from my orchard… all these photographs were taken with my Hasselblad 500 EL/M, 120mm B&W film. If you already know me, you know I like more analog than digital, I’m not saying I don’t like digital, I love it, with analog it’s just the feeling, being aware of how the image came to life in a more literal way, just with light and chemicals reactions, It’s just really impressive to me, I really feel the image and the story behind it, its just amazing…

Just looking at those images, make me think a lot of things, and then I ask myself, why? and it’s because of the simplicity of the image, just having a single plant hanging in a white background makes you think a lot of stuff, like, why it’s hanging? what does mean? what’s the message? and many more, when people start thinking and asking a lot questions about a single thing, like with this images, it will make them see things in different perspectives to try to find out what it’s? and in my opinion that helps a lot… most of the time helps to understand and answer all the questions that you have to ask yourself before, and without even thinking about it, in a blink of an eye, you’ll feel what does mean for you…
