Exhibition. PHOTO-STORIES: Migrants and refugees in Mexico
This exhibition presents powerful photo stories created by women and gender-diverse migrants and refugees in Tapachula, Mexico City, and Tijuana, Mexico.
The photo-stories (foto-historias) were created by 57 Latin American and Caribbean migrants and refugees in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico City, and Tijuana, California. This exhibition shows the creations of 12 of them.
These creations were produced between October 2022 and June 2023, through Foto Voz (narrative photography) workshops facilitated by Abril Ríos-Rivera. The workshops focused on how migrants and refugees make strategic life choices, and on whether migration can trigger processes of empowerment.
