  • Catalogue Essay

    'If the first impression is surprising, then there will be a second reading of the photograph. The second is the content, or the narrative behind an image.'
    Pablo López Luz

    Pablo López Luz explores the relationship between humans and their environment in his landscapes with a focus on his home town of Mexico City. His experimentations with vantage points and framing challenge our way of engaging with a landscape. López Luz has exhibited at a number of institutions, including the International Center of Photography in New York and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and his work is held at Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art holds another print of this image.
