Solar Portrait in Love

Faustina Flores Carranza (66) and her husband Juan Astudillo Jesus (63) sit in their solar-lit home in San Luis Acatlán, Guerrero, Mexico. Faustina and Juan have seven children and are together since 48 years. Like many members of the Mixtec indigenous community, they have never had access to electricity. When asked how having solar has impacted their lives, Juan said, ''For the first time, we are able to look at each in the eyes in our moments of intimacy.''
