Ivan Alechine, known as a poet and writer, born in Brussels and a resident of Paris, asked himself in the early 1995 about the interrelation between ecological damage and the disappearance of common sense.
An angel (John Lilly, Jr.) whispered in his ear: "If you want to convince the newspapers that it's an emergency, take photos, exhibit your photos, and then write your articles (your texts)." Mexico offered him an opportunity to look reality in the face.
From 1993 to 2005, with a Mexican press card in his pocket, he crisscrossed the country from north to south and from east to west.
Little by little, the photography took on its own weight, its independence.
Well off the beaten track, Poca Luz is the book of a Mexico at dawn, a Mexico tinged with blue in which the writer-photographer seems to be adrift.
The only thing that will save him from the storm is the click of the shutter.
