“The Liberation Army of the South was an armed group formed and led by Emiliano Zapata that took part in the Mexican Revolution [1910 to 1920].” The group was formed in the state of Morelos and are commonly known as the Zapatistas.

Agustín Víctor Casasola (Mexican, 1874-1928) began his career as a typographer before becoming a photojournalist. In 1920, Casasola was a founding member of the Mexican Association of Press Photographers. His archive is housed at the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology. Ref: Wiki.
