Invisible Angels

Sharing my new audio-slide show production titled "Invisible Angels" featuring pictures taken by blind and visually impaired photographers Gerardo Ramirez, Palmira Martinez y Raul Lopez.

The story contains interviews on them explaining their experiences using Mexico City´s metro to get around the city.


Photography is a way to communicate, not a competition among shooters. There is no winner and looser. Their goal is to tell their story.

The art of communication is not exclusive to professional photographers or institutions. Life is richer when there are different points of view, experiences and diverse people share their stories. Everyone´s stories should be judged by the content and message.

Here you can see a playlist with all the previous audio-slide shows 
I have produced with blind and visually impaired photographers.

Heartland


The Heartland is an audio-slide show about farmer Tomas Villanueva Buendia, who began a seed bank he calls "Tepetlixpa Seed Bank", to protect and rescue the original varieties of his nation´s corn.  The Mexican governtment is promoting foreign, genetically modified organism (GMOs) corn.  If GMOs enter Mexico, they will contaminate more than 1000 varieties of corn, killing the legacy of the Aztecs, Mayans, and other indigenous civilizations.  GMOs are banned in many countries due to link with causing health problems, environmental damage and destroying diversity.  If Mexico lets GMOs destroy their milenary culture of native corn, the legacy of their ancient god Quetzalcoatl (Aztec) and Kukulkan (Mayan) will be lost forever.
