Headshots of the President Special Edition By Alejandro Cartagena

In Headshots, Alejandro Cartagena mimics the idea of Hollywood actors trying to secure a casting through their set of headshots. Here, the then President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto, is presenting himself for the first time as the official candidate for the PRI party at the International Book Fair of Guadalajara. To say the least, his “performance” was a poor one. He tries to win over the crowd with his looks and best posses but his lack of knowledge of his favorite books surpassed any gain his acting could give. In the back of the 28 prints you can find some of Peña Nieto´s promises of how he was going to change Mexico. The poster child for the new PRI, ended up leading the country into more chaos and social unrest.

Design concept by Alejandro Cartagena and Fernando Gallegos
