The small family formed by photographers Gerardo Barroso, Lisa Tillinger and their baby moved to the noisy and full of life López Street, in historic downtown of Mexico City. Everyday-life at the place seemed worthy of a documentary, so they began to follow transients with their camera. The result is a kind of “urban symphony” in black and white, through which street vendors, mendicants and taqueros parade portraying Mexican society as a microcosm.
Gerardo Barroso Alcalá studied Film Photography at the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica. He has been director of photography in Mexican films such as Familia Tortuga (2006) and The Good Herbs (2010). Lisa Tillinger also studied at the CCC, and at the Film Academy of Vienna. She made the photography work for the film Artificial Paradises (2011). López Street is their directorial.
