In 2011, photographer Christopher Morris returned to Central North Mexico, capturing the banality of the everyday and giving it a sense of dignity.

In his forthcoming exhibition, Yo No Hablo Español (I Don’t Speak Spanish), he reveals the resolute pride of landscapes and life in a parched Mexico rarely glimpsed.

Christopher’s photographs evoke a strength, beauty, and timelessness in the ordinary. His choice of subject matter juxtaposes epic scale with up-close, unexpected encounters. From the stretch of roller-coaster mountains to the quiet dustbowl of a deserted, cactus-punctured street, Christopher’s images capture the rugged nobility of the people and the land on which they live.

“In 2008, I fell in love with the authenticity of Central North Mexico”, says Christopher. “Somewhat ravaged by the elements but most importantly proud, I vowed to return and document this often-missed part of the country. I set out with my medium-format camera and photographed just that; a rugged, beautiful, and proud Mexico and its welcoming inhabitants.”

In Yo No Hablo Español, Christopher’s photographs are the personal articulation of this. Yo No Hablo Español is accompanied by a limited edition, 50-page book of the same name, featuring further colour and black and white photographs published by Izrock Pressings. [Official Website]
