A preview of “The Beautiful Reverence of Mexican Altars”.

I’ve just returned from Baja Sur, Mexico, where I taught photo workshops on land and at sea.

While touring the countryside, I became fascinated by the beautiful and reverently decorated grave shrines within small Mexican cemeteries. The shooting conditions were difficult at best. I think it would make a great blog post to illuminate how I approached the work for “The Beautiful Reverence of Mexican Altars” shot in midday sun, through dusty paint-flecked glass and with very limited time. I’m still editing the work, and finishing several concurrent projects.

For now, until I get to a more complete post, the work can be viewed HERE.





I’ll report back after my next trip to continue this project.
