Dulce Pinzón just published a great photo essay on ForeignPolicy.com where he pictures migrants from Mexico in superhero costumes. Here’s his explanation:
I saw a Spiderman costume in a store in November 2001, and that’s when everything came together in my head. Comic-book superheroes have an alter ego, and so do immigrants in the United States. They may be insignificant or even invisible to much of society, but they are heroes in their homelands.
And here are some samples. You can find the entire essay here. Trust me, it’s definitely worth it. More images after the jump.
