Livia Corona

Published March 30, 2010 by Graham


How do we know what the world is like? As mainstream media talking heads attempt to explain things in abstract, flatly spoken proclamations, the value of rogue photojournalists and artists like Livia Corona rises exponentially. For instance, consider the following fact: Mexico is building an average of 2,500 units of low-income public housing every day. As a statistic, sure, that sounds kind of impressive, but it’d likely slip from your mind without a second thought if it weren’t for Corona’s illuminating images. For the past few years, she’s been documenting the human impact of these otherworldly suburban tracts in a series called Two Million Homes for Mexico, and the results are breathtaking.
