About this Item

np, profusely illustrated in color. Text in Spanish and English. This controversial photo-essay gives unprecedented access to the homes, and vacuous offspring of Mexico City's wealthiest families - think of this as the updated, south of the border version of Slim Aarons' "A Wonderful Time". The garish, Baroque interiors pictured here are truly from another world, revealing opulence truly at odds with the dutiful servants also caught before Daniela Rossell's lens. A brand new, most handsome example of the 2002 Turner Publications variant of the true first edition of this gem (cited on page 321 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II" and page 216 of Horacio Fernandez' "The Latin American Photobook") still in the publisher's shrinkwrap.

About this title

Synopsis:

See the super-rich in their vast kitsch palaces, modeling their latest designer wardrobes, showing off their art collections, petting their stuffed lions, posing on guilded, gleaming furniture, and tanning along the edges of lush indoor swimming pools. This is the private lifestyle of Mexican millionaires, and it is photographer Daniella Rossell's outrageous twist on what is historically understood as Mexican documentary photography. Rather than documenting the lifestyles of indigenous peoples, the urban poor, or exotic village scenes--as so many of her colleagues have done and continue to do--she has chosen to explore the habitat, customs, and traditions of the tiniest minority in Mexico: the ultra-rich.

About the Author:

Daniela Rossell was born in Mexico City in 1973. While studying figure drawing and paintings at the National School of Visual Arts in Mexico City, she worked independantly with an automatic camera. In 1997, Rossell was included in a group show at the Museo del Barrio in New York; the next year she had her first solo exhibition at Greene Naftali. Since then, her work has appeared at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; the Berkley Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and, most recently, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York.
