The 10 Best Photo Essays of the Month

Apr 01, 2015

This month’s Photojournalism Links collection highlights 10 excellent photo essays from across the world, including Matt Black's work from Guerrero state in Mexico. Black has documented impoverished indigenous communities in southern Mexico for years. This latest work captures communities affected by rampant crime and poverty, including the disappearance of the 43 students from a school in Iguala. The black-and-white photographs are extraordinary and the accompanying short-film, which includes a moving letter from a mother to his lost son, is definitely worth watching. The reporting was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center.
