Under the Mexican Light

Under Mexican light it is a project that has been carried out between 2015 and 2018.

Composed of a photo book, a novel and a notebook, the project presents a unique and largely unknown culture, full of topics inherited from the skewed vision that, in particular the Spanish and American media, show about Mexican reality. A complex society that in many ways is not too far from the time of its revolution or the Spanish conquest.

Mexico is a land of contrasts, huge, excessive. Words like life and death, tradition and modernity, religion, culture or gastronomy have a much more complex, deep and entrenched meaning than the absurd presumption where the country is linked only to corruption, poverty or violence.

The Photo Book, finished in November 2016 and which now appears in a second edition, shows the current Mexico through a series of images of our time that, in many cases, seem to come from remote times and reflect the more traditional clichés of their culture

The Notebook /Mexico proposes a photographic journey shared with artists from different disciplines (painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers and photographers) residing in Brussels, a city that articulates a strong link between them.

The project is completed with the novel 301 Lamartine.
