Re-discovering life with my camera.
November 1st 2013
San Andres, Mexico
On November 1st, all around Mexico families get together in commentaries to clean their love ones tomb and decorate them with flowers and candles. They stay together most of the day and many times all night keeping each other company sharing memories and food. It is an overwhelming experience to see them work with so much love and devotion.
They make death a celebration of life.
Altar de Muertos at Home.
Friends and family take candles, fruit and flowers to the departed. Through November 1st the family is never left alone.
In return the family cook for them.
Meet Guadalupe Barrueta de Macedo, she is at her dear husband’s Adolfo Macedo Jaimes altar.
