Death and photography have always been related. From the belief of stealing someone soul to the forensic practical use and the initial portraits of those who could not move anymore and would stay quiet for the required long exposures, there is something in photography that defies time passing by and death coming by.

There is also an open moral debate on where are the limits to explicit violence in published photography but the conclusions vary on the part of the world that debate is open. Mexico definitely has a different approach to both the representation of death and the moral threshold for violent photography.

"Las piedras jamás" explores the different ways we consume violence based on an archive from the newspaper "Alerta"and the passionate and violent lyrics of traditional Mexican folk music.
