Livia Corona shows us head-on the physiognomy of new urban settlements, derives from that analysis the need to reformulate the traditional notion of “home”. Her images offer a cross section wherein various aspects of the postmodern dwelling are unveiled. Coronaâ€™s photographs are an allegoric synthesis: they speak of the regulatory obsessions of capitalism of our times and the imagination of the individual set against that depradation.
