Mexico City Billboards

Billboards are a constant visual companion on the streets of Mexico City, surrounding the public centers of activity and occupying the space within every view corridor. In this way the billboards are demarcations of public activity, the commercial mining of population density.

Commonly occupying the rooftops of commerical buildings, the light frame steel trussed billboards tend to dwarf the buildings they hover over, creating a curious hierarchy of sign over building. This photographic survey documents some of the billboard structures found around Mexico City.
