369 human beings perished in the earthquake this past year in Mexico City. My family which still resides in Mexico was safe and unharmed, however, family friends lost homes and loved ones. I felt drawn to create a visual remembrance for those who did not survive. Using Photoshop I layered and edited 3 images together to create the above work.
Dia de Los Muertos is central in this photo since it is the day we can reconnect with the lost. This ceremony provides ways for the community to come together in celebration of the lives lived before. Memories re-lived and shared for the next generations to meet and understand the importance of family lineages moving forward.
