Alejandro Cartagena says, "I openly engage a critically dense examination of the complicated balance existing between economically driven states, and the yearning of a society for a fairer world in which to live." Car Poolers is a series of photographs taken from an overpass above Monterrey's Highway 85. The pickup trucks are heading south to San Pedro Garza Garcia, one of the richest cities in Latin America, and carry precious cargo.
