Abstract
 
Description
In this stunning visual account, South African photographer Trevor Appleson documents the bright colors and exotic people of Mexico with cinematic still lifes that evoke Old Master portraits. Wrestlers destroy candy-filled pinatas, resulting in broken and burned cartoonish forms. A group of young boxers with their clumsy gloved hands attempt to break eggs into a bowl. Pictures that at first seem to be representations of idle rural people show, upon closer inspection, graves and the aftermath of brutal industrial farming. With a remarkable ability to avoid the obvious and involve his subjects in the creation of his work, Appleson's images offer a revelatory, in-depth look at life in Mexico City and its surroundings. - from Amzon
