Went to Mexico City this past weekend to attend the Affordable Art Fair and spent Saturday walking the unbelievably crowded streets downtown. A surreal adventure...
Here are some pics:
|On every street corner costumed characters from |
superheroes to Homer Simpson, as well as these guys
will let you photograph them for a mere 10 pesos.
The wild dog puppet was truly frightening.
|This building, typical of many others in Mexico City, |
has obviously seen far better times.
|Yes, it's Frida. In drag. |
Outside the Sears building, of course.
|A piece by Leonora Carrington in an outdoor|
exhibit of her surreal animal scuptures.
