07.09.2017 Enroute to Mexico – Welcome to Zonamaco Anticuario !

C. B. Waite traveled to Mexico City and in May 1897 established a photography studio there, when Porfirio Díaz governed the country. He became part of Porfirian society, taking photographs of many in the ruler’s circle. He traveled throughout Mexico, exploring archaeological sites and the countryside. His life corresponds with that of adventurers, brave explorers with romantic spirits and materialistic outlooks, who toured the hitherto unknown world, discovering their riches and inventing paradises. …” (Francisco Montellano, C. B. Waite, fotógrafo)
