Here some compositions and unique pictures realized during the trip. We are working on the concept of diversity and the right to be different. In Mexico and many others countries in the world, this right is not warranted.
CONGRESO NACIONAL INDIGENA
A series of portraits of deported or migrants in Tijuana.
In Sonora’s coast there’s an ethnic group that is one of the most ancient in Americas. They’ve been living on an island for about 5000 years. Since 40 years they’re living on the mainland fighting to preserve the culture. They have no “formal” government, they use the old indigenous form of politic.
MAYOS & YAQUIS
These two ethnic groups are fighting to preserve the water. The Mexican government wants to divert them only river to the near city of Hermosillo. Leaving them with no water and so no food. In that case they will have to move to the city to find a job and they will lose them culture.
A small and beautiful town in Jalisco, center of Mexico. They are fighting to stay in that town. The government wants to make a dam flooding the town and moving them to another place. They just wants to stay and make that the UNESCO recognize that town as human heritage.
In june 19, 2016 mexican federal police repress the teachers in riot in Nochixtlan, Oaxaca. After several hours of fighting the balance was of 13 people killed between teachers and people rushed there to help. The people portrayed in these pictures are who have been in the fighting and some of them lose relatives or friends.
They got it!!! After years of fighting the city of Cheran is in autonomy. They have them own government and police. Everything started when they start fighting against the wood merchant who wants to exploit all the area leaving them in poverty. Before they rise against that system the area was in criminal organizations hands. At the moment who take the decisions are the people with popular meeting where everybody can express his own opinion.
