LOS ANGELES, CA.- In honor of Mexico’s Bicentennial, Avocados from Mexico, in partnership with the Los Angeles Mexican Consulate, are planning a historic photograph featuring 200 Mexicans and Mexican-Americans who share Mexico’s anniversary. Individuals of Mexican descent in the Los Angeles area who were born on September 16 are invited to participate in the 200 Faces, 200 Years photograph. Lourdes Almeida, a renowned Mexican photographer, will capture this powerful image depicting generations of heritage from the very old to the very young. Almeida’s work has been featured in more than 100 solo exhibitions in major museums throughout Mexico, Latin America, the United States, Europe and Asia. The photograph will be taken on Plaza Olvera, located within the El Pueblo Historic Monument in Los Angeles. Known as the birthplace of the City of Los Angeles, El Pueblo Historic Monument celebrates Mexican culture and reflects the historical significance of the event. &#147
