Juarez, N.L. Mexico, 2005-2010. This image is part of a 5-year project called Suburbia Mexicana. I wanted to document the rapidly changing landscape around my home city of Monterrey. Thousands of these little houses were being built and sold through government subsidies creating a housing bubble that lasted 12 years. In the end entire suburbs were abandoned and many became areas of extreme violence, where the drug war was fought for years. Others flourished and became the dream of homeownership the government forcefully pushed on Mexicans for years. These are the homes of The Carpoolers.
