Lake Xochimilco, Mexico City, 1960: “Someone dumped the body of a murdered man in the canal in Xochimilco. The lifeguard, attached to a cord for his own safety, swam out to the body. On the opposite bank you can see all the onlookers reflected in the water. I call this photograph, detective photography with art!”
