Mexico City: View From a Helicopter, Skyscraper and More

A city seen from a hill, from a terrace or in flight holds all the same potential definitions as the same city from the ground. In just one glance the past history, present and the near future cancel itself out.

Pablo Lopez Luz (the Mexican photographer) observed Mexico City through the lens of his normal, regular-sized camera from the edges of tall buildings, from the top of mountains and even while leaning out of a helicopter. In doing so he managed to capture some almost cartographic images of extreme realism. In this vast expanse of houses, the contradictions of an unbalanced city in continual expansion trying to conquer every available space start to emerge. Here the notion of landscape dissolves into an ocean of human dwellings.
