In this project about a fishing village on a lake in Mexico, Moises Levy’s interest is to capture the ancient way of life of the fishermen before it disappears.
Born in Mexico City in 1963, Moises Levy is a lifelong resident there, and works in the city as an established architect. His earliest interest in architecture and photography occurred on a trip to New York City when he was 13 years old. “I was fascinated with the buildings and the evening shadows of the city.”
In 1982, when he began his studies in architecture at Universidad Iberoamericana, his appreciation of the natural relation between light and architecture was deepened. Subsequent travel to Boston, Paris and Venice served to illuminate the unbreakable bond between architecture and its relationship with light. It was this early interest in the qualities of light that lead Levy to photography, and as a counterpoint to his work as an architect he has now been drawn to landscape work.
