Through the exploration of the barrios of Mexico City and the state of Mexico (EDOMEX) Alex is proposing street social landscape, showing the human condition of everyday life of popular neighborhoods (barrios) in Mexico.

"I live in a barrio in the north of the city, and when I walk around with the camera for me it's not just about taking a photograph or making a series of pictures. It's about my life instead, it's what I live every day. It's me, what I have decided to be. And it is the reality of where I live, what I try to represent! That's why, even if I am a foreigner, after 10 years here I feel I can say that my photography represents at least in part the true voice of the barrio".
