‘Lonely Nights’ in Mexico City Shot on 35mm Film

Photographer Moisés Bautista explores the emotion found in the streets of Mexico at night, shot on 35mm film. “I found inspiration in the dark streets of a city I barely know, a tense atmosphere, motels, bars and people everywhere.

Everything so saturated, I so alone.”

Orphans of Eros.

Eros, we can be sure, he is not dead. But, banished from the realm of his inheritance, he was condemned – as was once the aHaspher, the wandering Jew – to wander and wander, to roam the streets in an endless quest, and therefore vain, for refuge and shelter. Now Eros can be found anywhere, but in none will he stay for long. Do not have a permanent address: If you want to meet with him, write to the remaining post and do not lose hope.

– Zygmunt Bauman – Amor líquido.

Translated from the original text:

Huérfanos de Eros.

Eros, podemos estar seguros, no ha muerto.
Pero, desterrado del reino que le corresponde por herencia, hasido condenado – como lo fuera una vez aHaspher, el Judío errante – a merodear y deambular, a vagabundear por las calles en una búsqueda interminable, y por lo tanto vana, de refugio y cobijo. Ahora Eros puede ser hallado en cualquier parte, pero en ninguna se quedará por mucho tiempo. No tiene domicilio permanente: Si quieren dar con él, escriban a poste restante y no pierdan la esperanza.

– Zygmunt Bauman – Amor líquido.
