Art, exhibitions, Photography

I went to the Jonas Mekas exhibition at MUAC  in Mexico City. The films, photographs and poetry  were so mesmerizing I had to share. His films are stunning, his words- moving.

“These are not memories. These are real – every detail you see in the films is real – memories are gone but the images are here and they are real, right there in front of your eyes – and I like it! I like what I see!’ – Jonas Mekas,  Artist Website Here.
