Jesús León: Vida (Edition Patrick Frey, 2018)

 

 

For over twenty years Mexican photographer José de Jesús “Chucho” León Hernández has been documenting Mexico City’s vibrant music scene.

 

 

 

 

 

“A huge cultural magnet with its population of 20 million, the Mexican metropolis is constantly reinventing its nightlife, providing a stage for those who seek the limelight and perfect hunting grounds for Chucho, whose presence and camera significantly shape the ambiance around him, to chase and capture the creatures of the night.

His subjects vary from the young and beautiful to the queer; from drug- and sex-driven exuberance to Mexico’s eternal and omnipresent flirtation with death.

Chucho is influenced by the aesthetics of Mexican Catholicism as well as by fashion magazines and photobooks, which he studies obsessively.” Publisher’s Info
