THE FACTORY OF DREAMS: INSIDE MEXICO’S SOAP OPERAS BY STEFAN RUIZ
Over the past several years, Stefan Ruiz has gained special access to Mexico’s Televisa studios, known as “The Factory of Dreams,” where nearly 50,000 hours’ worth of telenovelas (soap operas) are produced and exported annually to more than 100 countries. Stefan Ruiz’s photographs of the factory and its people portray a behind-the-scenes look at this special place with humor and affection. Ruiz’s photographs reveal a secret world of elaborate and surreal studio sets, and they include portraits of television stars in character as well as students being groomed for future celebrity status at the Televisa “soap school.” This is the world of beautiful women, handsome men, and rags-to-riches Cinderella stories, all of which expose the underlying fantasies of social aspiration in societies with entrenched racial hierarchies.
