SATELUCO: revisions from my suburban past
A self-referential photographic analysis of middle-class suburban Mexico City, based on past relationships with people and urban space, that seeks to establish a visual dialogue with them in the present day.
I examine social stratification of the Mexican culture in Sateluco. This project, which received the acquisition prize of the XII Photography Biennial in Mexico in 2006, features suburban landscapes from Ciudad Satélite, a region that developed north of Mexico City in the 1950s. The progression of this project led to my exploration of this environment in the search to define, look through and reaffirm many things: identity, family, friendship, and society.
This project was awarded the Acquisition Prize of the 12th “Bienal de Fotografía” organized by Mexico’s Centro de la Imagen in 2006.
