101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides
This show of photographs by influential Mexican photographer Enrique Metinides is the first to feature images chosen by Metinides himself. It accompanies the new book 101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides, a look at his life and work. Brilliantly, selected photographs are paired with the original newspaper tearsheets the photographs appeared in.
"101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides is Enrique Metinides’s choice of the key images from over fifty years of photographing crime scenes and accidents in Mexico for local newspapers and the nota roja crime press. Accompanying the images are Metinides’s own accounts of the characters and life of the streets, the sadness of families, the criminals, and the heroism of emergency workers—which reveal much about himself as well."
