In addition to the Mayas, Aztecs, Zapotecs ruins reminding the country of its history, Mexico also has a heavy colonial past. Shows are often organized to celebrate and so these moments of the past are not forgotten.

However, Mexico is definitively a country looking forward, rapidly growing, inevitably creating inequalities among the population. Cars are still inaccessible for some people, yet, VW beetle is by far the most common car in Mexico.

Houses are often very colourful, both in villages or in the cities. We especially liked these windows and Campeche frontages.
Finally, these photos represent mexican people in their everyday's life, markets scenes and so on.
