One aspect of mindfulness is paying attention—to the food I eat, the words I use, to the countless people that I walk by on the street each day. Photographer Dulce Pinzon’s latest project, Superheroes,” is a homage to the people—window washers, taxi drivers, waiters, nannies—she passes by each day in New York, and the implications of their lives on the greater world. She writes, “The Mexican economy has quietly become dependent on the money sent from workers in the U.S. Conversely, the U.S. economy has quietly become dependent on the labor of Mexican immigrants. Along with the depth of their sacrifice, it is the quietness of this dependence which makes Mexican immigrant workers a subject of interest.”
