Ana Topoleanu. Those from the other coast: the raicillero world.

Los de la Otra Costa is a documentary photography project carried out by Ana Topoleanu with texts by Arturo Dávila. This exhibition narrates the tradition of the raicilla on the Coast of Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco; from its process and tradition, to the families that have dedicated themselves to this work for generations. Through captivating images, Los de la Otra Costa reveals the relationship between these families and the natural environment where the coastal landscape and country life converge.

Ana Topoleanu is a documentary photographer of Romanian origin, whose projects have been published in media such as T Magazine, The New York Times and Vogue. Her work stands out for offering an intimate narrative and having cultural diversity as its central axis.
