Floto+Warner + Anónimo

Floto+Warner have been working on a personal project called Anónimo.

“Anónimo are photographs of US and Mexican nationals staged in an anonymous protest to raise awareness of the struggles of the ‘Normalista’ student protesters that were killed in their fight for education.  Inspired by the vernacular items that the protesters use to obscure their identities, our anonymous protesters stand wrapped and protected from discovery.

The ‘Normalistas’ are students that are protesting government educational reforms to privatize education. The ‘normal schools’ are part of a network of teacher training colleges that have long offered free education to the sons of farmers and rural poor.  If the government succeeds in its reforms, many of these students will be barred from attending due to poverty.

On September 26, teaching students from the Ayotzinapa ‘Normal School’ in Guerrero, Mexico were intercepted by police forces while en route to a ‘Normalista’ protest in Iguala. In the ensuing clash, six people were killed, and 43 Ayotzinapa students were taken away by the police. Witnesses and prosecutors allege the students were killed by a local gang after police handed them over.

This series is our response to the deep injustice and atrocity of this event.  We are examining notions of national identity, safety and freedom from the relative safety of the US.  This is a privilege that we don’t take lightly.”

Martin Schoeller + TIME Lightbox + The Photo That Made Me

Martin recently wrote a piece for the TIME Lightbox’s “The Photo That Made Me” series about an image he sees as boosting his career. In the article Martin talks about the below image, a portrait of Vanessa Redgrave he shot in 1999, an image he captured in only 10 minutes. Not only did this portrait catch the eye of his future clients, but also helped him develop a style he still shoots today.
