Open air exhibition of 170 large format photographs from recognized photographers like Casasola, Nacho Lopez, Waite, Ramos, Brehme, Briquet, Charnay, Aubert, Gove & North, Alvarez Bravo, Mayo brothers, and others that illustrate the urbanization process of Mexico City, from a small city populated with "chinampas" to slowly becoming covered by asphalted streets and sky-high buildings. The images are displayed throughout the Chapultepec park fences, in the sidewalk of one of the main avenues in Mexico City.
