Metinides was born to a family of Greek immigrants in Mexico City in 1934. He published his first photo at the age of twelve, earning him the nickname ‘El Niño’ (The Boy). A year later, he became an unpaid intern as a crime reporter for the tabloid ‘La Prensa’ beginning a prolific five decade career in photography. He worked as a photographer from 1949 to 1979 as part of the ‘Nota Roja’ (bloody news), shooting photos of crime, murder, airplane crashes and other disasters for Mexico City tabloids. ‘Series’ is an attempt to examine his work from the perspective of cinematography, sequentially revealing facts that come together in a substantial way to form a common motif with continuity between the various episodes of his oeuvre.
