PHOTO WALKS – THEMES

Some of our photo walks focus on a particular theme, such as Street Art or Crafts or Architecture, or incorporate a theme as part of the walk.


STREET ART

Street Art is popular in Mexico City where it is often used to make dilapidated areas more beautiful and encourage the locals to take pride in their neighborhood. Although we often photograph the street art wherever we go on our Photo Walks, there are a couple of walks which focus on the street art.

ARCHITECTURE

Mexico City has a lot of architectural styles, ranging from pre-Hispanic, Colonial, Art Nouveau and Art Déco, Functional and Modern. On all our Photo Walks we pay special attention to the architecture, but some of our walks are focused on a particular style.

MARKETS

Mexican markets are a bright colorful affair and always fun to photograph, whether the tianguis or street markets, food markets and craft markets. We visit some markets on these photo walks.

LANDSCAPE AND NATURE

Sometimes we get out of Mexico City and the towns to photograph natural areas.
