Trisha Ziff

About:
An exploration of the work of a noted Mexican crime scene photographer.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Even as a child, Enrique Metinides was obsessed with images, photographing car accidents in his Mexico City neighborhood and snapping pictures at the local morgue. Tabloids soon started publishing his photos, beginning his three-decade career as a crime photographer. Through Metinides’ compelling work, which often captures not only gruesome scenes of human tragedy but also the curious reactions of onlookers, Trisha Ziff explores our morbid fascination with death and accidents.
