“Embers from a controlled cane fire burned one night...



"Embers from a controlled cane fire burned one night earlier this month, with limestone walls as a backdrop. A group of Mexicans and Americans — firefighters, conservationists and park rangers — had set out for some of the most desolate stretches of the Rio Grande. Their task was not to put out fires, but to set them in a controlled burn to kill an invasive grass. Accompanied by @nytimes reporter Manny Fernandez, the photographer @tamirhasacellphone spent 3 days documenting the group's work — as well as their after-action meetings, which took place under the stars in words that shifted between Spanish and English. Even the name of the river itself lost its regional identity, with some of the Americans calling it Rio Bravo, as Mexicans do. We'll be sharing more of @tamirhasacellphone's photos this #nytweekender." By nytimes on Instagram.
