Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made by Héctor García documenting Holy Week observances among the Cora in Western Central Mexico in 1969. They include images of a church, musicians, masks and mask makers, processions, and performers. Notes on some of the photographs relate them to descriptions in Fernando Benitez, Los indios de México, 1970. The photographs, mostly enlargements, may have been made for an exhibit. The collection also includes a photograph of an announcement, dated April 3, 1969, made by the governor of the Cora that concerns the observances and a booklet, Seman Santa entre los Mitos Indigenas Coras, that includes text from Benitez's book.
Biographical/Historical note:
Héctor García (b. 1923) is a photographer in Mexico City, Mexico. Born and raised in an impoverished district of Mexico City, he first began taking pictures in the 1930s while participating in labor and student protests. After traveling in Northern Mexico and the eastern United States, he returned to Mexico in 1946 and began formal studies in filmmaking and documentary photography. García worked as a photojournalist for Mexican and international publications and has received numerous awards for his cinematography.
