Since 2015, Más Héroes fights the violence through artistic photography featuring model citizens of areas that struggle with the issue who are denominated Heroes of their comune. The Heroes share their story and it is captured through a series of photos that reveal their tenacity and desire to set an example to the society by pushing forward with activities, companies or movements that reject illegal matters and break through the paradigm of a whole country.
When these pictures are ready to be displayed, they are hung somewhere visible in the neighborhood where the Hero lives in a large-scale poster. The impact this project has had starts with new generations aspiring to be leaders just like those chosen to become Heroes! This brings change from the inside out and helps them ensure a future of peace.
Felipe Mesa is the founder of this project and leads the way when it comes to finding, interviewing and photographing all the Heroes alongside a small group of people who believe in the positive impact of Más Héroes.
