Over the past six years, Stefan Ruiz has gained special access to Mexico’s Televisa studios, known as The Factory of Dreams, where nearly 50,000 hours of telenovelas are produced annually. These intriguing tales of revenge, love, money, and despair are one of Mexico’s largest exports. Stefan Ruiz’s photographs of the factory and its people reveal a behind-the-scenes look at this secret world of elaborate and surreal studio sets with humor and affection. Informative texts, plot summaries, and dialogue further illuminate this fascinating cultural phenomenon.
