26 Jan Mexico City Exposition with Harvard’s David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies
It was so exciting to attend Sean Reagan’s documentary photography exhibition in collaboration with Harvard’s David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies Wednesday at the MUCHO Mundo Chocolate museum in Colonia Roma, Mexico City. It was a beautiful space in an old colonial building, full of colorful designs, quotes and geometric black and white patterns.
DRCLAS selected 100 images to show from Sean’s documentary collection, including Mexico, Central America, Cuba and the Migrant Project. A portion of the images were printed and hung in the museum, while the others ran on a continuous slide show projector. Chosen for print were primarily images of Mexico, including selections from Jaral de Berrio and San Miguel de Allende, and the Migrant Project was printed in its entirety.
Sean’s photography is a contribution to the visual record of changing cultures in Latin America – documenting peoples and customs evolving together in an increasingly interdependent world. His photography tries to capture moments that provide insight into a culture at a particular time in its development/evolution; cultures are forever changing. After 6 years in Mexico, he’s only just scratching the surface of this culturally and geographically diverse country. Sean has worked toward improving U.S.-Latin American relations through fieldwork in Central America and policy research in Washington DC.
