Re-discovering life with my camera.

Dia de los Muertos. San Andres, Mexico. Four Families.

November 1st 2013

San Andres, Mexico

On November 1st, all over Mexico, families gather together in commentaries to clean their love one’s tombs and decorate them with flowers and candles.  They stay most of the day and many times all night keeping each other company sharing memories and feeling their loved one presence.  It is humbling  to experience so much love and devotion.

Family One




 Family  two



Family Three





Day of the Death ofrenda at home.

The family of the departed place an ofrenda at home.  Friends  bring candles, fruit and flowers to help decorate the ofrenda.

The family is never left alone.

In return the family cooks for  their guests

Meet Guadalupe Macedo, she is  at  home, entering her dear husband’s Adolfo Macedo Jaimes ofrenda.
