In addition to its direct translation meaning “little light,” the title “Poca Luz” alludes to a phrase used in Mexican popular speech to express indignation or admiration. In his photographs, Belgian artist and writer Ivan Alechine (born 1952) uses the disappearance of Mexico’s indigenous lifestyle to investigate the interrelation of ecological damage and the decreasing value placed on practical thinking.
