Photographer's Note

After the Thai and Polish series I come back to some old pics of my previous travels.
This is a shot taken from a market in San Cristobal de las Casa in Chiapas. I think everybody knows - or at least has ever heard of - Subcomandante Marcos, teh chief of Ejercito Zapatista de Liberaccion Nacional. This is an icon of anti-imperialism and a somehow modern Che Guevara (maybe I am not so precise in this description, I hope you do not get disturbed..anyhow I am not expecting to write a book on his ideas).
Well, one shirt says "La unica patria por un revolucionario es la revolucion" but, seeing so many shirts being sold (everyboy visiting chiapas usually buys one of them) I could not help thinking that "revoluccio" has turned somehow into "globalizacion".
