Although best known for his work as a fashion photographer Hoyningen-Huene also travelled the world taking topographical photographs. His images were reproduced in a series of books published by J.

There are no captions and no people, the pictures speak for themselves and celebrate the rich archaeological and artistic history of the Mexican nation.
