Old Woman with Wash, Portugal
From the Portugal collection
People, again. The most fascinating part of Portugal.
I’ve been to Portugal twice. Once on my own and once to photograph the harvest of tomatoes for the Heinz corporation annual report. It was another dream assignment because I got to travel around the world shooting harvests everywhere. Someday I’ll put them in a collection for you.
This is a round about way of telling you the reason for images of the pickers eating their lunch.
I drove around the country and hardly ever knew where I was, when I was shooting. I’m really bad at taking notes.
One photograph at the end of this collection is “Blue Wall and Doves.” It has become a signature image for me. There is no truth to the rumor that I carry the birds with me. The shot before is the whole scene as I first saw it. I thought it would be interesting for you to see the two together.
