Mexico City February 2nd - Feb 5th 2023
Travel to Mexico City, Mexico with photographer Danny Howard with years of experience teaching photography at Richard Stromberg’s Photography Classes in Chicago.
Mexico City is the largest Spanish speaking city in the world and the most populated city in the Americas. Built in 1325 by the Aztecs, we will visit the Temple Mayor, as well as the baroque Palacio Nacional housed in the square Zocalo. (Can be seen in the James Bond film "Spectre". It's known for its Templo Mayor (a 13th-century Aztec temple), the baroque Catedral Metropolitana de México of the Spanish conquistadors and the Palacio Nacional, which houses historic murals by Diego Rivera. All of these are situated in and around the Plaza de la Constitución, the massive main square also known as the Zócalo.Our goal is to help you develop as a photographer, see landscapes and places not on many tourist routes and to meet and interact with local people from another culture.
