Note
  • The artist was inspired to create this series of images by reading about the tumultuous Cristeros uprising in western Mexico in 1927-1929. The prints do not constitute a history of the Cristiada, but rather represent images that came to mind during the reading of the material available on an important, but largely suppressed or forgotten, period in the turbulent history of western Mexico. The cruel attempt to destroy the Catholic church in Mexico by dictator Elias Calles left many dead on both sides of the conflict, army and peons alike
