José Luis Cuevas: The Smelly One

Zone Zero... José Luis Cuevas: The Smelly One (26 black & wite photographs). "...Its official name is 'Salon Orizaba' and perhaps it’s the most singular beer hall in all of the old downtown Mexico City. To find it, you can ask for 'La Apestosa,' the nickname that the place has literally adopted and keeps with pride to the last detail. La Apestosa is a place of encounter for alcoholics and prostitutes. This photographic essay documents the relations between them and the atmosphere of the place. A dark place where alcohol and sex reign."
