Alejandro Cartagena

Edward Weston once said that the problem with Mexico was that it was easy to develop 'postcard syndrome.' Meaning that the place was so picturesque that everywhere you pointed the camera there was a picture to be made, and not necessarily a very original one at that. The work of Alejandro Cartagena is 5485.13 miles away from those obvious clay pots and cattle skulls on old wooden doors. AC's website overall is a wonderfully well done body of work covering many issues, some often associated with Mexico, some not so much.
