Loteria Fotografica Mexicana
Photographs by Jill Hartley. Text by Alfonso Morales Carillo.
200 pp., numerous black-and-white illustrations, 8¾x7".
"For many years, an American photographer who lives in France has been traveling throughout Mexico with 'lottery eyes'. Her name is Jill Hartley and her game consists of putting together...a series of images as an homage and a variation on the pictures from the popular game of chance that has been for decades and is still a favorite pastime...The landscape of Mexico, the people in their ordinary comings and goings, their daily objects, the everyday flora and fauna, provide the models for a lottery in black and white, a new reinterpretation of that colorful universe where luck chooses between the lady and the devil, the barrel and the mermaid..."--Alfonso Morales. This boxed set includes a post card sized book, two decks of Hartley's 'lotería' cards and the game boards upon which the lottery is played.
