Summary

• A refreshing look at Mexican culture, people and photograph
• Mexico Megalopolis will also be the catalog for the exhibition of the International Fotofestival in Knokke, Belgium

Mexico city is one of the most glamorous but also one of the most dramatic cities in the world. The many challenges and opportunities the city faces (migration, segregation, urbanization but also resilience, pride, political consciousness) are an omen for the future of other world cities.
This book presents the best Mexico has to offer when it comes to contemporary photography, with a focus on the capital Mexico City. Breathtaking panoramic landscapes from Pablo Lopez Luz, humorous images from Alejandro Cartagena, street photography by Mark Alor Powel, portraits of rich people by Yvonne Venegas. The most important artist in the book is Graciele Iturbide, one of the most influential Latin American photographers of the past four decades. Her powerful black and white images have received many awards, such as the W Eugene Smith Memorial Foundation Award and the Cornell Capa Lifetime Achievement Infinity Award 2015.
This book is a unique document of a unique country and its capital and will also be the catalog for the exhibition of the International Fotofestival in Knokke, Belgium.
