"On 31 January 2013 at about 3:45pm local time, an explosion occurred in the basement of a parking garage adjacent to the main office building of the Pemex Executive Tower in Mexico City, killing 37 people and injuring over 120 more. This photobook, part of a new SSK Press series that debuted at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA for the 2014 Los Angeles Art Book Fair, is a collection of images created the days before and after the blast on a one-week trip to Mexico City. The images were developed using a series of experimental processes involving boiling water, excessive agitation, and intentional fluorescent exposure, which, along with the melted mylar cover and charcoal dusted on each page, gives the book a feeling as though one were looking through the wreckage of an anonymous sea of fire."
