I came across this work by Mexican photographer Pablo Lopez via The Exposure Project.
"At first glance, many of Pablo Lopez's 40x40" photographs of Mexico City and its surroundings are near abstractions of color and form. The images are an attempt to examine the city's historic landscape as well as reinterpret the relationship that people have to the ever-expanding urban environment. the interplay between man and his surroundings, both natural and developed, serves as a foundation here in all of Lopez's current work. By maintaining a distance the photographs of the Terrazo series afford each viewer the chance to see this scene with minimal political context and to discard many preconceived notions concerning this expansive metropolis."
