The Car Poolers: Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena
"The Car Poolers" is part of a larger body of work entitled “Suburbia Mexicana" which considers the interdependence of humans and landscape in the face of urban expansion. With a bird’s eye view over the trucks commuting to and from work, Cartagena captures images of laborers carpooling in the back of pickup trucks. The photos portray the resilience of humanity, and an intimate look at men trying to survive.
Join us for a talk by the artist on Monday, February 24 from 6:00-7:00 PM in Walsh 398.
