Alejandro Cartagena's favorite book from 2018

Through text and image, this book takes us on a journey of grief over the loss of a loved one, through the chaotic and rambling feelings mixed into the process. The book asks of us to let go of looking for specific answers about what "it's about" and drags us down a spiral of incertitude that slowly, like a movie, develops into an experience of the issue itself. We are made to feel the denial, the anger, and a possible acceptance of things that are out of our control. I truly enjoyed the flow of the texts and images playing on each other.

Alejandro Cartagena's favorite book from 2018

Gold, death and the uncertainty of our Latin American identities are some of the issues brought up in Juan Brenner’s new book. Uncomfortable and in your face, the images don’t shy away from pointing out how even after 500 years of the European invasion and massacre carried throughout Mexico and Guatemala, we still haven’t found peace.


Alejandro is a editor and a self-publisher. His books examine social, urban and environmental issues in the Americas. Alejandro lives and works in Monterrey, Mexico.
