Merida Nuevo/ New Merida

Merida has a beautiful, lively cultural center, fine old buildings (16th – 20th centuries) and is a tourist destination.  It is also a living city, growing rapidly, building up for almost the first time.  So far, architecture is mired in the Bauhaus which is called “minimalism” so shooting it is a challenge (living in it is not).  This series will try to capture a taste.
