When writing about the contemporary US-Mexico border, many describe it as a space in flux—a place that is neither here nor there, a porous in-between zone created by the exchange of people, goods, and ideas that flow across it. It is a place that defies neat categorization, in part because of the many people who occupy the same lands their ancestors once did, long before our nations drew their current bounds. People whose lineages criss-cross and contradict this area’s divisions, whose languages are mixed and multiple, who embody a place that is always in between.

Saying Goodbye in the Midst of a Pandemic

by Cristian Leyva | Jan 18, 2021

Two photos by Cristian Leyva were selected for the exhibit “Documenting the Impact of Covid-19 through Photography: Collective Isolation in Latin America,” curated in collaboration with ReVista and the Art, Culture, and Film program at Harvard’s David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS.)

The exhibition, based on an Open Call for Photography launched in July 2020, aims to create a critical visual record of our unprecedented times so they can be remembered by future generations.

“En los ojos de ReVista sobre Covid-19, la música y el luto suelen ir juntos. El fotógrafo mexicano Cristián Leyva toma fotografías en movimiento en un cementerio. Todo esto se ha transformado debido a la crisis de salud. El luto se ha vuelto más solitario; los amigos no pueden proporcionar un hombro para descansar o un abrazo abrazador al sufrimiento, y aunque la música continúa, con mascarillas para proteger, su sabor es más sombrío, un acompañamiento audible para digerir el dolor,” Él nos dice. Las fotos de Leyva fueron elegidas para la exposición digital, ′′ Documentando el impacto del Covid-19 a través de la fotografía: aislamiento colectivo en América Latina,” patrocinado por ReVista y el programa de arte, cultura y cine en el Centro David Rockefeller de Harvard para Estudios Latinoamericanos (DRCLAS))”.

Collective Isolation in Latin America

Documenting the Impact of COVID-19 through Photography

Curatorial View

The exhibition Documenting the Impact of Covid-19 through Photography: Collective Isolation in Latin Americaaims to create a critical visual record of our unprecedented times. 2020 will be remembered as a watershed year in which a pandemic laid bare the inequalities and fissures within our society. It has also underscored the importance of living and participating in communities even while experiencing the pandemic in isolation. This exhibition contributes to the documentation of these breathtaking times so they can be remembered by future generations. In addition, through this curated selection of photography from Latin America and the Caribbean, the exhibition seeks to promote a regional perspective of the collective isolation imposed by Covid-19.

The exhibition curated in collaboration with ReVista and the Art, Culture, and Film program at Harvard David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) is based on an Open Call for Photography launched in July 2020. A jury of five Harvard-affiliated scholars, curators and artists (*) reviewed all submissions and selected three winning prizes that are presented at the top of our Photo Gallery. The rest of the DRCLAS-selected submissions are listed in alphabetical order. To view titles and larger-size images click on each photograph to access the pop-up gallery view.
