PAPER WORK NYC SUBMISSIONS || @reggiemccafferty 📷 || I’m an NYC-based photographer. I travelled recently through Mexico and shot these photographs during a time of political turmoil (The disappearance and murder of 43 dissident students.) The populace was horrified and outraged. You could feel that electricity coursing through every aspect of daily life, its presence palpable in each interaction. As an American I could observe the events, the protests that descended on the city at nightfall, feel the emotions, the terror and dread, but I was still culturally disconnected in a way that kept me alien. These photographs depict the mood of the city as I felt it during this period of time, an outsider looking in to capture the immense weight of the political murders || #submissions #Paperworknyc #reggieMcCafferty
