Please join us for the launch of Disrupción, a fotozine created collaboratively by seven Méxican photographers; Luis Antonio Rojas, Felix Márquez, Yael Martínez, Koral Carballo, Mauricio Palos, Selene Ugalde, Omar Martínez, and journalist Stephania Corpi. 

This work addresses the challenges around distance learning that children around México experienced during the pandemic. For this assignment, each photographer approached a student in their hometown to document the changes and processes they went through to adapt to distance learning schooling. The subjects ranged from an 11-year-old who lives in a home without electricity in Veracruz to a 7-year-old in Mexico City’s upscale Polanco neighborhood. 

This work was published by "Sin Resentimientos". Purchase a copy here

Masks will be required to attend this indoor event.
