The Day of the Dead (“Dia de Muertos” is celebrated in Mexico between October 30th and November 2nd. On this day, we as Mexicans honor our deceased loved ones. For me is my favorite time of the year in my country and is the perfect time to make memorable photos, as people is a in celebrating mood, and if you go to the streets you can see all the rich culture, colors and traditions of Mexico. It’s a very colorful holiday and is like “party” in which we celebrate those who passed away.
Also cemeteries are decorated and people use to go there to be with their loved ones; people make altars in their homes, one day before the “The Day of Dead” putting food and/or things like cigarettes, alcohol or any other thing that the passed one enjoyed while living.
One of the many traditions in these days are the “Catrinas”; those are skeleton lady’s that wears lots of makeup to make her skin look whiter.
In this post I want to share some photos that I made with my wife, and also I want to thank my loved Gabriela for being the model and for always supporting me to do what I like the most (“being a photographer”).
