Casasola, Romualdo García, Graciela Iturbide, and Enrique Metinides. In this short video, Mexican Portraits photographer and editor Pablo Ortiz Monasterio discusses the process of selecting and sequencing the photographs to tell a history of Mexico, and reflects on Mexican identity, both individual and collective.
