The AFI collection
In this gallery you can see examples of some ways in which material from the AFI collection has been used; included is information on the project's books, a selection of media and academic publications about the project, and two research projects undertaken by volunteers in collaboration with AFI photographers.
The Archivo Fotografico Indígena was created in 1996 with support from the Ford Foundation, in collaboration with CIESAS Sureste, a social science research center located in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. AFI now contains more than 85,000 images by Indigenous Mexican photographers from more than 10 ethnic groups. The aim of the archive is to promote Indigenous photography and provide resources for Indigenous heritage and research. The range of themes represented in the collection include: agriculture; architecture; celebraciones and fiestas; construction; daily life; education; the natural world; production of objects and materials; protraits and other things, such as multi-lingual texts.
