Boreal Collective’s POY 2016: Mauricio Palos (@mauriciopalos): The work I’ve been following in the last year deals with the conclusion of one of my long term projects in Mexico that focuses on the relations between power, land and socio economical disparities, the last chapter of the project is being produced in La Huasteca Potosina, the region where most of my family comes from, and where colonial Mexico still holds a strong presence in the daily interaction between their people. As a lineal thread of the continuation of my work, that began in Central America, im starting following stories up the border in the US.
