14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The "43 students of Ayotzinapa" have marked our lives as Mexicans. Murdered by the State on september 2014, have shown the world and ourselves, that we have a corrupt government, but also, and more important, they’ve raised us up from
the numbness and actively seek for solutions as a community.
For me there is no more a representative image of Mexican art as "Woman with Calla Lilies" by Diego Rivera, inspired by this work, I wanted to show how we as Mexicans are marked by the "43", but this time, with
clenched fists, Mexico is desperately seeking for a honest and fair government, one which we all deserve.
