Photographer Nacho López was Mexico's Eugene Smith, fusing social commitment with searing imagery to dramatize the plight of the helpless, the poor, and the marginalized in the pages of glossy illustrated magazines. Even today, López's photographs forcefully belie the picturesque exoticism that is invariably presented as the essence of Mexico."--University of Minnesota Press "...to describe [this] book's conventional structure hardly does justice to the humanity of Lopez's vision. Like Joan van der Keuken's Paris, Lopez's Mexico City is a dark, uneasy place with an air of barely contained violence hanging over the crowded streets. Lopez does not spare us the signs of social injustice and his sympathies are clearly with the urban poor." Parr & Badger
