The People  The Land  The Struggle

An inside look at the people, politics, land and culture of Chiapas, Mexico

By Scott Sady

Most of these images were made while working as a photographer for the Associated Press in Mexico between 1994-1998. At the present day, they serve more as a historical reminder of the way things were and could be again. There have been great changes in the Mexican political landscape since these images were made, but great injustice remains. A Click on any of the following images will take you into that chapter. If you would like more information on Chiapas, try the following links. I hope you enjoy the presentation.
