"In 2013, 2 of @yaelmtzv's brothers-in-law disappeared in Iguala, Mexico. The family's heartbreak was compounded when a 3rd brother died in jail while awaiting trial on drug charges. "I wanted to show the emotional and psychological fractures that come with such losses," said. @yaelmtzv, who is pictured here with his wife, Lucero. "There is fear and impotence because you can't get an answer." In the state of Guerrero and elsewhere in Mexico, @yaelmtzv's family is not alone in their grief. To relate his family's experiences about what has been convulsing his country, @yaelmtzv produced a series of photographs that are quiet, personal and haunting.
This weekend, the @nytimes #lensblog and @cunyjschool are sponsoring #nyportfolio16, an annual portfolio review that provides photographers the opportunity to have their work seen and celebrated. This #nytweekender, we'll be sharing more photos from participants at #nyportfolio16. Visit the link in our profile to see more photos by @yaelmtzv." By nytimes on Instagram.
