Las Clavadistas de la Quebrada
The series "Las Clavadistas de la Quebrada" awarded by IPA International Photography Award 2019 captures the ephemeral moments of young men fearlessly plunging in the uncertain.
One-and-a-half to two seconds is a matter of life and death. The ethos of the cliff divers of Acapulco is to not only to show courage, but to honour their families and home country, Mexico. Carrying the burden of great hope of an era that doesn´t exist anymore. For just like Acapulco’s legendary beauty and elegance, the majestic gestures of the cliff dives appear to fade into oblivion.
