The Ephemeral Art of Food Stalls – The New York Times

Shot on assignment for The New York Times, June 2022

The colourful hand-painted signs decorating iconic Mexico City street food stalls are disappearing as a new law is set to unify their appearance. Through a series of photographs of those still decorated, details of their distinctive lettering, punchy and often absurd characters and the costumers who eat there daily, I documented a fading traditional art in favour of modernisation. The work was put together on an interactive feature by the New York Times which you can see here.
