20-ти миллионный человеческий муравейник.

Unbelievable photos that show Mexico City from above, demonstrate just what it means to be the most populous city in the Western Hemisphere. The Mexican capital’s sprawling suburbs are home to 20 million souls with an astounding 25,400 people per square mile in the city.

Endless rings of homes radiate out in ocean-like waves from the city center and Mexican photographer Pablo Lopez Muz has shot the phenomenon to dazzling effect. ‘In a megalopolis like Mexico City,’ says Lopez Muz, ‘constantly threatened by its incessant population growth and it´s lack of infrastructure, the relationship between man and space is ever so apparent.’


Hills and valleys aren’t allowed to stand in the way of human habitation here. Homes cover both and follow the rise and fall of the earth as far as the eye can see. ‘Flying over Mexico City has always been an overwhelming experience,’ says Lopez Muz, who took the photos from the cockpit of a tiny two-person plane. ‘For ages it seems like the urban landscape with no ending, continually spreading over the hills and flatlands of the city.’


Mexico City is also extremely polluted. Though smog has been drastically reduced in recent decades, an orangish fog often hands just above the sprawling city around the mountain peeks that surround it.
