Documentation of Cracks and Posters in Mexico by Jennifer Mannebach and David Wildfield, Chicago, IL, USA

These photos were taken in Mexico City and Oaxaca. Most of the colorful buildings are from Oaxaca, where everything seemed to be in an equal state of decay - the posters seemed embedded in the peeling walls. In putting them with the other images I was thinking about places where things collect both intentionally (posters) and unintentionally (debris and wear and tear from human activity) and how it all seemed kind of the same.
