In March, 2019 inspired by the recently released film ROMA by director Alfonso Cuarón David traveled to Mexico City. His goal on this short trip was to explore different neighborhoods and to begin photographing in the field the proiect CHIMISKOLI: Investing in People.
He returned again at the end of October to spend some time in Mexico City, expanding on some visual themes begun in March, and to continue CHIMISKOLI (this time traveling south to the state of Chiapas). David also made plans to document the events surrounding the annual festivals surrounding Dia del Muertos while visiting the city of San Cristobal de las Casas in the southern state of Chiapas.
Also included is a compilation of the work compiled from many trips to Mexico since the 1980s, Viva Mexico!, and a selection of Mexico specific images from the larger collection Brownie Work.
