ALEJANDRO CARTAGENA – CARPOOLERS
Exhibition runs through January 10th, 2014

Carpoolers is the latest series in Cartagena’s on-going project investigating the shifting political, economic and physical landscape of Mexico. Twice a week over for a year, Cartagena stood on the pedestrian overpass of Mexico’s Federal Highway 85 shooting downward at the six lanes of traffic, capturing the ubiquitous work trucks heading to the expanding suburbs. The truck beds contain not only the expected supplies, but also hidden riders; laborers catching a dangerous free ride to job sites, lying carefully arranged among the cargo, at times appearing like a still life or diorama.
