Cordula de Bloeme’s photography exhibition

The commercialization of Tepito as a tourism product is strongly associated with the neighbourhood’s negative reputation and its visual representation and the way they influence each other. Still there is pride among Tepiteños, the residents of Tepito, or even a collective identity, that seems to defy poverty and stereotypes. Cordula de Bloeme captured this in her portraits which are exhibited at the AkademieGalerie in Munich.
