ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Paquimé is a distinctive archaeological site located in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is deemed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, thanks to its unique labyrinthine architecture adapted to its surroundings and for being a point of conversion between the West and the Center of Mexico.
The collection photography campaign was made in collaboration with Anahuacalli, a studio, museum, and temple for art that Diego Rivera conceived as an architectural piece that unites past, present, and future to the natural environment. The fusion between the collection and the space perfectly complements, opening a dialogue between pre-Hispanic and current Mexico.
