Photo Workshop with Ernesto Bazan
Deciding to dive into Mexico City knowing that is one of the biggest urban sprawl in the world, second only to Tokyo frightens you. Delving and mixing among the different people that at all times crowds the city center gave us the opportunity to discover a multitude of aspects of this fascinating and disquieting city.
We accompanied millions of pilgrims that were arriving tired, moved and joyous to the Virgin of Guadalupe cathedral; we met the welcoming Triqui indigenous community from Oaxaca; we visited museums, walked along tranquil parks where people were looking for relax and enjoyment and we traveled in the subway.
Exactly because of this metropolitan characteristics and for the unstoppable flow of people, finding interesting photographic situations hasn’t been so difficult, but those images that managed to overcome Ernesto’s severe editing along with the other students’ approval are only a few. The unchosen images will remain only in our memory and heart.
I thank Ernesto for having shared with us some of his future projects and that made possible the meeting with different and talented Mexican photographers.
