This album contains images from three trips to Oaxaca. The first was a wonderful one with Richard Martin, where he taught me how to make great images using shadows, as well as the other wonderful shapes and colors that come with any Richard Martin trip. Then, in late October 2013, I went with Tino Soriano for the Day of the Dead. We spent four nights shooting in cemeteries by candlelight, and other night shoots in squares in central Oaxaca. Since I have never tried shooting by candlelight before, those shots have to be considered experimental. We also saw a procession and visited private homes. In 2015 I went back again with Richard Martin, and found many more pleasant subjects. I went again with Richard in 2017 and am beginning to post my images from that trip now.
