Pablo Ortiz Monasterio

The Last City

The Last City

"Stendhal’s famous definition of the novel—a mirror carried along a road—could well apply to The Last City. But Ortiz Monasterio's is a selective mirror, precise and implacable, which retains only that which is worth preserving." — José Emilio Pacheco

Mexico City presents a post-apocalyptic paradigm, rivaled only, perhaps, by Los Angeles—it is a metropolis ravaged by immense poverty, crime, and the ill-effects of overpopulation. As a street photographer working in the tradition of committed documentary image-making, Ortiz Monasterio reveals Mexico City’s fragmentation.
