Street food markets of Mexico City was shot 12 months ago after spending a month in the city. I was intrigued hearing tourists flying into Mexico City to immediately fly our to more tourist-friendly places like Cancun and Talum due to film, TV and press constantly showing how ‘dangerous’ the city is. I decided to spend a month exploring to get under the skin of the city and found some amazing people and places.

Mexico city is one of the most misrepresented cities in the world. Almost every movie or TV show has military rolling through the streets in humvees, drug gangs killing each other on the streets and those life and death situations that make for good entertainment. Many tourists fly into Mexico City and straight out again to find the safe tourist trail of Oaxaca, Talum and Cancun and completely miss the sights and sounds of this amazingly vibrant city.
It’s a photographer’s dream with little to no tourists found in many of the sites and markets. There’s something for every price point - from the street food stalls to the Michelin Star restaurants and travel out of the city to visit Pueblo Magico towns is stupidly easy, cheap and quick. I’d suggest getting Mexico City on your radar and get off the beaten track.

Nic Crilly-Hargrave is a London based professional photographer and social media marketer specialising in food, drink, events and travel.

"I create image portfolios for leading hospitality venues independently and in collaboration with creative agencies. Taking a social-first approach, I like to immerse myself in the action to capture both front of house and back of house, and give a true representation of each individual venue - its people, its food and its customers. My images are great Instagram eye-candy, but can also be edited for press releases and media requests. In fact, my shots have been published in GQ, The Guardian, Time Out, Stylist and The Evening Standard."
