“The importance of this project is to make a contribution to the history of Mexico, to represent our Chol culture through photographs.”

CPP Photographer on her personal project, From the Rural Community to the City
Beginning in 1996 CPP helped establish and manage the Archivo Fotográfico Indígena/AFI, located at the Center for Research and Higher Studies in Social Anthropology-Southeast (CIESAS), an academic research center in San Cristóbal de Las Casas. AFI served as a place to store, catalogue, and provide access to images from the collection generated by AFI training programs. At the end of 2012, at the photographers' initiative it was decided that their original materials in the collection would be returned to them, and they were. With that result the AFI project concluded successfully.
