Submitted Series - Terrazo
In Terrazo (2005-2009), the city is presented as a continuously shifting landscape, where the threat of the urban spread over the rural land is always present. Some of the images in this selection relate directly to the historical and pictorial landscapes of the Valley of Mexico City in the first part of the 20th century, where the natural valley remained unconquered. However in these photographs, where the presence of man can be linked to the roads dissecting the natural space, the city rests in the background, sometimes unseen, quickly reaching the unscathed terrain. "My main concern in this work is to portray the effect that overpopulation and the lack of structure or guidelines in the development of a city have had on the city's terrain, land and population."
