Casa Mexicana StyleBook - 2006
In Casa Mexicana Style, the long-awaited follow-up to his successful 1989 book Casa Mexicana, photographer Tim Street-Porter once again allows us to experience the extraordinary beauty and variety of Mexican homes. Casting a discerning eye across the contry's residential landscape, he takes us on an insider's tour of the most spectacular homes Mexico has to offer. The houses of Mexico have a rich past and are the product of a unique culture that mixes the heritage of the indigenous peoples - the Aztecs, Mayas, and Toltecs - with that of the Spanish invaders. They are also strongly influenced by the land itself, for Mexico ranges from seashore to desert, from jungle to mountaintop, from a city of more than 20 million to a wilderness where time seems to stand still. In Casa Mexicana Style, Street-Porter captures the full range of Mexican homes in 250 brilliant photographs of more than 40 locations.
