Frontiers are found everywhere, between countries but also between communities. We built them even between our own neighbours; some are physical, some are not. In the last two decades there has been a phenomenon concerning the society, environment and economy of Mexico, and it is the fast growth of cities.
“Neighbours” is the story I have witnessed between Puebla and Cholula with the passing of time; where the capital of a state and a neighbouring town have been growing so much they have ended up touching, creating a social hybrid.
This project searches to present the effect of this urbanism in the population and the environment, starting by those who have been living in the three towns of Cholula for generations working as agronomists; and who have had to start selling their lands to real state developments, because in the economy of the cities is no longer profitable for them to keep their practice. But also searches to present the other side of the coin, the future they are fighting for, by looking for ways to attract the people from the city to buy directly to them, to make them aware of their existence and their contribution to society, as neighbours.
