XVÑERAS was inspired by September in Mexico, the month that marks Independence Day (Día de la Independencia). It is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the “cry of independence” that took place on September 16, 1810, which started a revolt against the Spaniards. It follows from the day of the Cry of Dolores (El Grito de Dolores), a historical event that happened in Mexico in the early morning of 16 September 1810. Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the bell of his church and gave the pronunciamiento (call to arms) that triggered the Mexican War of Independence. This happened in the state of Guanajuato within the small town of Dolores (now Dolores Hidalgo). –Román Gómez, photographer.
