In 2006 I was invited by Expansion to visit Mexico. I photographed fantastic buildings.
Grupo Editorial Expansión, Time Inc. Expansión, S.A. de C.V president John Reuter and his assistant Carlos Pedroza invited me to photograph Mexico City. With the great support by employees like Karin Migoni and Pamela Ocampo I was able to photograph the most important monuments of Mexico City.
Grupo Editorial Expansion runs 15 magazines and reaches 5.3 Million readers through their magazines like: Expansion, QUIEN, CHILANGO, VUELO, LOOP, InStyle, ELLE, BALANCE, Life & Style, Audi, Yachts, QUO, EXP, AMBIENTES, OBRAS, MANUFACTURA, IDC (Información Dinßmica de Consulta).
The aim of the commission was for Expansion to be the first publishing my work in Mexico, which was right in August 2008 in the magazine Life & Style.
The Palacio de Correos de Mexico is Mexico City's main post office building, designed by Italian architect Adamo Boari (1863-1928) and Mexican engineer Gonzalo Garita. Adamo Boari also designed parts of the Palacio de Bellas Artes across the street. It is built in the Renaissance Revival architectural styles with cream-colour sandstone during the dictatorship of Portfirio Diaz.
