Defiant Spirits: Fernando Brito’s Sinaloa is an exhibition of Fernando Brito’s moving images of life in Sinaloa, a province that has been wrecked by the struggle between one of the most powerful drug cartels in the world and the Mexican government.  The award-winning photographer’s work reveals both the raw violence and the resilience of life in Sinaloa under the Cartel de Sinaloa.
