Natural and Unatural Disasters

Enrique Metinides was a Mexico City tabloid photographer from 1949 to 1979. His subjects are the victims of "Bus crashes, train crashes, plane crashes, car crashes ... If it crashed, Enrique Metinides was there with his camera .... Stabbings, shootings, suicides, drownings, fires, freak accidents , natural and unnatural disasters ..... like a crash-course in the diverse ways people get mangled and killed." -Telegraph

"...a beautiful blond-haired woman’s lifeless body lies across a toppled metal pole ... Her dead eyes are open, gazing up past the camera. Blood drips across her cheeks; her limbs are skewed, broken." -artnet
