Mr. Noel Escalante who we know as an employee at the BTB has shown us samples of his photograpic works and we have to say they are FINE!  Mr. Escalante is an excellent.  If you can, you should attend his exhibition.  I am sure he will have a ton of great stuff displayed, stuff you can hang proudly in your house in your hotel rooms or in your store or office or wherever.  Support the man, please.  His stuff is THAT good!

The Mexican Embassy has translated the press release in both Spanish and English (see below) for your ease of reading.
