This is an 84-photo composite of people, each holding an image of their missing relative. The photographs of the 84 were shot between April and August of 2015 in the city of Iguala and surrounding towns. The world, and even most of Mexico, paid little attention to Iguala until 43 students from a rural teachers’ college disappeared on Sept. 26, 2014. Two months after the students disappeared many other families in the area began coming forward to tell their stories, emboldened by the international attention focused on the missing students. Their message was simple: there are many more missing. They called them “the other disappeared.” The AP interviewed the relatives of 158 of those missing. Only 84 agreed to be photographed because they are still very fearful. (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)
