“Tláloc” (1964), Héctor García


Fotógrafo mexicano, Héctor García dedicó su vida a recorrer la Ciudad de México para registrarla con su cámara. Se concentró en retratar la infancia, inspirado por su condición previa como “niño de la calle”. Por su lente contradictoria también pasaron personajes famosos del cine y pintores de la época.

“Tláloc” (1964) pertenece a la primera categoría. Un hombre de piel morena señala con el dedo hacia adelante mientras las aguas sobre las que se posa avanzan. El enigma se encuentra en la procedencia del agua, en el extraño movimiento que presenta y —sobre todo— en por qué el personaje se sitúa ahí, en medio.

Originario de La Candelaria de los Patos, un barrio del centro de la ciudad, Héctor García realizó gran parte de su obra cerca de esa zona. Esta escena muestra una calle anegada a causa de las lluvias y de la mala condición del desagüe.

Situado en una esquina con la calle Zaragoza, el encuadre nos muestra otros dos personajes además del protagonista. A la izquierda un hombre contrasta con la escena por su traje y por la indiferencia por la que camina a un lado de la inundación. A su lado, un niño pequeño sale de lo que pareciera ser una tienda de abarrotes, y mira con atención lo que sucede, incluso pareciera que mira de frente a la cámara.

La escena se encuentra alumbrada con la iluminación natural del sol, probablemente por la mañana, ya que podemos suponer que el hombre que camina viste de esa manera por dirigirse al trabajo.

“La mexicana” tiene en sus paredes anuncios publicitarios de Pepsi Cola, con la imagen de la época. Sin embargo, arriba de la puerta derecha la oposición es marcada nuevamente por un pequeño anuncio de Coca Cola.

La imagen en blanco y negro encuentra su punto más claro en el agua que se mueve al lado de “Tláloc”, con lo que dirige nuestra mirada hacia él. La estatua humana toma otro sentido si conocemos la historia fuera de la imagen. Su posición en el centro tiene un propósito: ofrece a las personas cruzarlas de una banqueta a la otra para evitar que se mojen. Es en esa narración en donde encontramos el verdadero contraste, el de un hombre que intenta ganarse la vida y el de quienes pueden permitirse pagar por no sumergirse en la laguna citadina.

Héctor García fotografió con gran sensibilidad la ciudad que fue suya desde niño, recorrió sus calles —cámara en mano— para capturar el momento oportuno; encontró así a algunos de los personajes más emblemáticos de su tiempo, personajes que aún nos muestran la disparidad de nuestra urbe.
