About the Project:
“Scars is a series composed of 20 portraits of residents of Mexico City. Each resident decided to engrave ink marks on their neck/faces as a statement of their life experiences. This allows them to step out of the crowd, define themselves as unique and by no means look back. Just forward.”
About the Photographer:
“Carlos Alvarez Montero is a native from Mexico City. His work focuses on the relationship between appearance and the creation of identity.”
