Carlos Álvarez Montero: Day of San Judas Tadeo

San Judas Tadeo
All photographs by Carlos Álvarez Montero

The Mexico City-based photographer captures the hope and faith of the worshippers of San Judas Tadeo.

Montero’s photography focuses on the relationship between appearance and identity, making him the perfect artist to reflect INTELIGENCIA’s mission of telling Latinx stories through the prism of hope and possibility.

According to Montero, “On the 28th day of every month, mass is held in the name of San Judas Tadeo, saint of impossible causes, [who is] often revered by people involved in illegal activities. I took these pictures at the San Hipolito Church in Downtown Mexico City.”
