photographer and co-founder of the Mexican Association of Press Photographers. Photographs in the collection also include
depictions of daily life in Mexico, and Mexican presidents in the early 20th century. In addition to photographs taken by
Casasola, there are additional photographs on Mexico and its politics taken by Casasola's sons after his death in 1938.

for a newspaper, which led him to become a reporter for various newspapers. He also began working as a photojournalist, documenting
both sides of the conflict during the Mexican revolution that broke out in 1910.
