“I wanted to show a part of the Megalopolis that struck me, that showed very clearly that something is not working well for us as human beings in relation with our environment.” -Héctor Mediavilla
A glimpse of Mexico City’s subway as seen through the lens of photographer Héctor Mediavilla.
Known as one of the worst cities in the world in which to drive, Mexico City’s rush hours aren’t much better underground with a subway system that generates around 4 million riders a day.

‘Quest for Land’ exhibition…
One year ago ‘Quest for Land’, an App for the iPad, bundling 10 years of photographs about land issues in Cambodia was released. There will be an exhibition at Meta House, on Sothearos Boulevard (yes: in Phnom Penh) to celebrate.
It is the first time these photographs will be featured in an exhibition in Cambodia.
The exhibition will be open at 6:00 PM on May 29th and last for the following 2 weeks.
The exhibition is only the tip of the iceberg though… For the full experience go to iTunes: the ‘Quest for Land’ App developed by Robert Starkweather is available at THIS LINK. It contains over 700 photographs, spread over 20 chapters, and is enriched with a text by Robert Carmichael doing some in-depth analysis about the land grabbing situation in the country, and there are slideshows with soundtrack.

Just like everyone else, you learned about how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly (or moth) inside a chrysalis (or cocoon) and you desperately tried to envision what happens inside and what it looks like. Scientists who’ve opened a lot of chrysalises will tell you the caterpillar turns to goop and then a butterfly, but that’s not completely accurate, and the process of opening one destroys the structure anyway.

visa application photography guide
it always intrigues me to find institutional guidelines for photography, i immediately want to think about the application of this in other contexts. or things i might find on one of these lists someday, like guidelines for facial expression. i got to see the intake mugshot space at a police station once and they had these homemade plywood lighting boxes mounted to the wall that ensured every photograph came out flat and evenly lit without variation. maybe ill make some bullet points about what to include/not include in the photographs i take
