LA CIUDAD DE ENRIQUE METINIDES

The pictures taken by photographer Enrique Metinides are meditations on death and loss, tokens of his admiration for the work performed by fire fighters and rescue workers, empathy-filled images that reveal the deeply human tendency of voyeurism. While dealing with highly gruesome subject matter, there is no hint of glorification or cynicism in his approach, only a passion for achieving honest images filled with all the intensity of the moment.
