‘Testigos / Witnesses’ at Museo de las Americas

testigos
Testigos / Witnesses is a powerful, timely photography exhibit that presents larger-than-life portraits of the indigenous Otomi community in Mexico that creates traditional amate paper, on which the portraits are printed, and which was once banned by the Spanish for its close association with indigenous culture and empowerment.
Born out of a friendship that developed between Gaal and Otomi artisan Genaro Fuentes Trego, Testigos / Witnesses is about Life, Death, Culture and Time. Gaal brings his full artistic power to this exhibition, weaving together photography and anthology into a stunningly wise and compassionate presentation that engages the soul as much as it does the eyes.
