JosuΓ© Rivas

My friend JosuΓ© Rivas is an Indigenous photojournalist. When he found out we were doing a magazine issue on death, he told me about his idea for this photo essay. He wanted to document his healing from the trauma of losing his father when he was a child. It's actually a beautiful love letter to his young son and future generations. I wanted people to hear his voice as they view his photos, so he and I made this short video, too—an inspiring minute and a half about living honorably, as a future ancestor.
