Journey to the center . Cristina de Middel



In Stock

Cristina de Middel offers thought-provoking images. Her photo essay "Journey to the Center" investigates phenomena related to the migratory route through Mexico, has an atmosphere and symbolism inspired by Jules Verne's famous novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth".

With a language that combines documentary photography with elaborate images and archival material, the narrative acquires multiple layers.

The migratory route through Central America is portrayed as a heroic and daring journey. Mexico, the setting for this adventure, is presented as the fascinating and extreme country it is.

She has an exhibition at Rencontres d'Arles 2024 and the image of the official poster of Arles 2024.

Cristina de Middel has spent years traveling with migrants on the train they call "the beast", interviewing hit men, talking for hours with "coyotes" (clandestine smugglers) and police. Combining his own photographs with objects found in the desert and archival images, he creates a multi-layered narrative.
