Carpoolers by ALEJANDRO CARTAGENA
These fascinating pictures are the series of carpoolers photographed by artist Alejandro Cartagena in 2011.
These pictures show how carpooling is practiced by workers in México. He also wants to tell the story of the dramatic changes like environmental, demographic, and economic he is witnessing play out in his home city of Monterrey.
He pointed out his investigation of the multiple and complex issues relating to unhampered suburban expansion, where suburbs are being built in faraway lands with no proper public transportation to the urban centers causing greater commutes and consumption of gas.
Even though these workers are not conscious of the ecological impact they have by traveling this way as they are doing it to save time and money, they are a silent contributor to the preservation of our planet.
