DFectuoso
22 March 2018

 

A holga 120 (plastic camera) in hand, walking the streets of Mexico City in 2010. The city was once nicknamed DFectuoso, a play with words referring to D.F. or Distrito Federal and the conditions of the city and life here. Distrito Federal was officially changed to CdMx in 2016.

The  Holga has its own defects with light leaks and images overlapping and seemed appropriate. The plastic lens also helped to separate me from the scenes, as was how I felt being new to the city.
