This book is a record of the French photographer, Antoine D’Agata’s, Mexican travels over the past thirty years. A tense, immobile diary of his experiences in the devastated landscapes of an increasingly volatile criminal society. Still images, cinematographic narratives and texts make up a personal diary that, through intimate, sexual and narcotic encounters, constructs an increasingly sickening reality. Mirroring his journey as he wanders through a lonely and marginal world, d’Agata’s photographic language seems to fracture and degenerate page by page. Text by Paco Ignacio Taibo II, Nicolas Arraitz, Bruno Le Dantec, Tania Bohorquèz, Alfonso Morales.
