Re-discovering life with my camera.
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.

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
