Artist Statement:

This photograph was taken a month after a hurricane hit the Yucatan. The city zocalo was cleaned and ready to receive tourists. However, once one walked a few blocks away from the centre, the devastation became obvious. Displacement and added hardship to community members and the destruction to surrounding rural areas and wildlife were evident. The photo addresses the continued resiliency of the people.
