Trisha Ziff Discusses 101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides

An excerpt from Chris Boot's conversation with 101 Tragedies editor Trisha Ziff.

 - November 30, 2012

Now available from Aperture, 101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides is Metinides’s choice of the 101 key images from his life photographing crime scenes and accidents in Mexico for local newspapers and the nota roja (or “red pages,” for their bloody content) crime press. Alongside each image, extended captions give his account of the situation depicted, describing the characters and life of the streets, the sadness of families, the criminals, and the heroism of emergency workers—revealing much about himself in the process. Here, in conversation with Aperture Foundation executive director Chris Boot, editor, filmmaker and curator Trisha Ziff discusses her relationship to the images compiled with Metinides for 101 Tragedies of Enrique Metinides.
