This picture was taken at Taller Leñateros in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas México in 2009 (I think). (their website: http://www.tallerlenateros.com/) This funky contraption is used to break down pulp to make paper. This image tells a story of ingenuity and invention in the service of printmaking/papermaking. It also hints at the kind of community and ethos Taller Leñateros enjoys and promotes; resourcefulness, creativity, humor and cooperation. If you’re ever in the wonderful city of San Cristóbal, visit!
