This is a book which, through a series of photographs by the artist, reflects Mexican reality in a global world of need and consumption. It portrays the wide range of products sold at the traffic lights on the streets of Mexico city. These products range from basic necessities, household goods, food, newspapers, phone cards, children's toys and stuffed animals to the most unimaginable and superfluous objects. In a city, where the car is the means of transport for a large sector of the population and job opportunities are scarce for most, street vendors have found way of survival in response to the lack of support from the authorities for finding a more decent, safer way to work.
