Oaxaca, 1999

This project describes the life of Sergio, Nigenda’s blind friend whom he supported during his rehabilitation. Nigenda photographed Sergio while he travelled to his small home town in the Zapotec Southern Sierra as well as during his comings and goings in the city.

Instead of trying to describe the visual aspects of the photographs, in this work, Nigenda narrated moments or experiences with brief phrases. It was from this series onward that he decided to write the texts in braille on the front of the prints.
