A Long and Personal Trip Throughout the USA
Exhibition of photographs by the highly acclaimed Mexican photographer, Pedro Meyer. The exhibition has been organized as part of the Athens Photo Festival 2010 and in cooperation with the Hellenic Centre for Photography...
The exhibition presents photos from Meyer’s travels throughout the USA, a journey that took 30 years and resulted in about 80,000 photographs. Meyer has said that given the nature of the country –its ever-changing images and diversity– he finds it almost impossible to describe it in its entirety. This is why his photographs shift between the genres of documentary photography, photojournalism and street photography. He has said that because photography is never about any one single reality, it is particularly well suited for describing the various and often contradictory sides of this country.
The exhibition is held under the auspices of the Embassy of Mexico in Greece.
