An Indigenous Peoples in the Americas Event

A MIRROR TO OUR WORLD: Photo Exhibition & Presentation

Carlota Duarte, MFA, began the Chiapas Photography Project in 1992 to serve the indigenous Maya in Chiapas, the southernmost state in Mexico. Since then, over 300 indigenous men and women from different ethnic groups and religious backgrounds have learned how to use photography as a mode of personal artistic expression, and many have undertaken projects that celebrate and engage members of their communities. The CPP has gained recognition from the Mexican, American, and international press, the academic community, and the art world.
