Sergio's Career

An ethnic Mexican Indian, Sergio was born in 1946 into a poor family. His abilities at elementary school won him a place in one of Mexico City's best secondary schools where he learned English. He moved to England in 1970, earning a living as a hotel catering assistant and a racing car mechanic before getting a job as a press photographer. By the time he returned to Mexico after 18 years in Britain, he had become very successful, working for Newsweek, the New York Times, the London Sunday Times, Paris Match and Stern.
His present persecution has effectively ended his career.
