Mexico City presents a post-apocalyptic paradigm, rivaled only, perhaps, by Los Angeles - it is a metropolis ravaged by immense poverty, crime, and the ill-effects of over-population. As a street photographer working in the tradition of committed documentary image-making, Ortiz Monasterio reveals Mexico City's fragmentation.

About the Author:

Pablo Ortiz Monasterio" was born in Mexico in 1952. He is best known for his gritty photographs of impoverished Mexico City youths--downtrodden, but never beaten. His work was recently featured at Santa Monica's Rose Gallery.

From Booklist:

"You really have to see it for yourself." So friends said when the topic meandered to Mexico City, and they were right! Yet the raw starkness of Monasterio's photographs captures the ugly beauty of this megalopolis even better than the fleeting human eye might. Isolating moments of this ever expanding city, his lens calls up the tragic as well as the comic in the human endeavor. In each, an individual moment of grace is stilled, though its actors were in motion: a blind man gazes into heaven while a small child walks by, a sun hat like a halo around her little head, her eyes seeming to look out for him as well as her. Another image shows two young men playing matadors while, just above them, cars rush--tradition and modernity juxtaposed. This is Mexico City: past and future battling while more humanity continues to stream into it. Concluding with an informative essay by JoseEmilio Pacheco, this handsome volume makes a valuable addition to current events as well as fine photography collections. Raul Nino
