The New York Times – Mexico City’s Taco Stalls
Jordi Ruiz Cirera as Photographer
The colorful hand-painted signs decorating iconic Mexico City street food stalls are disappearing as a new law is set to unify their appearance. Through a series of photographs of those still decorated, details of their distinctive lettering, punchy and often absurd characters, and the customers who eat there daily, the photographer documents a fading traditional art in favour of modernization.
