Issue Details

Illuminates the diverse image culture in North America’s largest metropolis and the ways Mexican photographers are pushing new visions in the medium.

The latest in a series of city-based issues, Mexico City profiles the

and Graciela Iturbide to the most exciting figures at work today,
the issue presents a range of photography as well as Mexican and
Latin American writers—both veterans and newcomers—to an
international audience.
