Venantius Joseph Pinto, a resident of New York City, has had a multidimensional perspective for most of his life. The eldest of three sons, he was raised in Bombay, India, in a Christian family originally Goans. The former Portuguese colony was liberated and became part of India the year Pinto was born, 1961. Goans Christians are a minority in Bombay, but Pinto says when he was growing up, “I saw myself as different rather than separate.”

“I think where the crop circles are is as important as what they are. The English fields are so ordered. Where a crop circle appears, it is as though a big hand has embossed them.”
One of Pinto’s series of digital prints features crop circles. The shimmering Agrometry 2 is from this series; it (correction: it was Agrometry 1, which) was shown at the International Print Center in New York City (in Winter 2001).
