Mexico: El lago asfaltado


The Museo Archivo de la Fotografia (MAF) in Mexico City, in partnership with the country’s Secretary of Culture, is currently presenting the exhibition El lago asfaltado (The Asphalted Lake), a reference to the lake covered by the construction of the city. Nearly one hundred photographs have been selected by the curator and architect Alejandro Hernández Gálvez. They tell the story of Mexico City’s urban transformation over the course of the 20th century, from the construction of the Calle 20 de Noviembre in the city’s historical center in 1935 and the Avenida de los Insurgentes in 1948, to the opening of the Abelardo L. Rodríguez market in 1934. Now the public can see photographs of these events, all of which marked the development of the city.
