Alejandro Cartagena - A Small Guide to Homeownership
|The Velvet Cell
A Small Guide to Homeownership is an amalgamation of 13 years of work, starting with Cartagena´s Fragmented Cities series made between 2005 and 2009 in which he documented the suburbanization of the Monterrey metro area in northern Mexico. This project began an exploration that led him to document the changes that this development brought to the city; from transportation, urban planning, infrastructure development, private and public bureaucracy, the challenges in people’s daily life to the ecological consequences of this unplanned growth.
