Here’s What ‘Mexico’s Most Beautiful Woman’ Looks Like 6 Years Later.
Huerta plans to release a book of his most stunning photographs.
"From the beginning of the project, I knew this was the next logical step," he reveals to Remezcla. "The documentation of indigenous groups of Mexico should be done through a book, not just through social media."
He set up a Kickstarter to raise $30,000 to publish a 300-page book.
The book will have unpublished photos. Huerta wants to point out the money he is raising will go towards the design, printing, and drafting of the book.
He self-financed the year he spent in Mexico.
The deadline for the Kickstarter was July 2, 2016. The funding goal was not reached but Huerta is not giving up. "That’s the next goal," he admits. "For a publishing house to become interested and publish the book inside and outside of Mexico."
For Huerta, publishing this book is about preserving culture and history.
"Some of these towns are almost extinct, and you can only find information and statistics about the majority of these groups, but no real documentation," he explains. "There isn’t a legacy to help them preserve and protect their customs."
He found his journey through Mexico was educational.
"It is surprising that we have more than 57 native cultures (in Mexico) and we don’t know at least half of them," Huerta told Huffington Post. "The information is nearly nonexistent.”
