La Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa

At the end of november of 2014 I took a trip with reporter Carol Pires from Piaui magazine in Brazil to understand more in depth what was happening in the state of Guerrero in context with what happened in Iguala on the tragic night of the 26th of september with the students from the Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa School. We spent three days, talking to students and parents. In mid December I returned with journalist Heriberto Paredes from Agencia Subversiones and spent four more days with the students, camping with other journalists in the dormitory-changing room next to the pool, home of 4th-year student, Yoni. This selection of images showcase the home and learning center of the the 560 ( minus the ones killed and dissapeared in the past 3 years)  students who are in the process of becoming teachers, soon to be the ones to educated children in the most remote areas of Mexico.

 + A selection of images was published in Brazilian magazine Piaui website in January 2015. In September 26th, 2015 in the one year anniversary of the dissapearance in the students, the Mexican online newspaper published the gallery:
Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa: Surviving after the catastrophe with a selection of these images.
