Small Miracles’ is an exploration of the relationship between image, miracle and faith in contemporary Mexico. Popular legend asserts that the statue of the Virgin of Juquila remained undamaged during a tragic fire that destroyed the village. Since then, she has been venerated by millions who visit her shrine in order to ask for ‘miracles’ and give thanks for those she has bestowed upon them. For this series, I visited the shrine in Juquila, Oaxaca - a Mexican state facing deep economic crisis, mass emmigration to the U.S.A and a prevailing drug war. I isolated and and photographed the 'milagritos' using the pin and string they originally came with. They are then mounted onto framed LED panels, radiating red light, giving the viewer an insight into the prayers of the faithful. We see images of body parts to give thanks for the healing of broken bones, an image of breasts appealing for help to produce breastmilk, a plea for a chicken or a good crop of maize, as well as more symbolic images such as a husband conquering his alcoholism or a heart for love. For the pilgrim, the image depicted empowers the prayer, and becomes a tangible testimony of the act of praying before the miraculous Virgin.
