"When 3 of his family members disappeared, the Mexican photographer @yaelmtzv documented his in-laws' sorrow to put a face on the type of suffering that so many families in his country experience.

He says that by looking at these small, personal moments in the aftermath of loss, he can begin to shed light on what so many other families are enduring in his country.

This weekend, the @nytimes #lensblog and @cunyjschool are sponsoring #nyportfolio16, an annual portfolio review that provides photographers the opportunity to get 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.
