So much is happening in the world, so much is happening in my life, struggles and triumphs in equal amount. Today I wanted to honor the lives of Allan Sekula, Carlos Batts, and Spain Rodriguez, all amazing artists who have shaped my life and my creative vision. On this Dia de los Muertos I’m sending my thanks and gratitude for the many ways in which they’ve touched me.
These photos from my annual Day of the Dead shoot with Mayra Ramirez are dedicated to them. This year, Mayra and I shot at Somarts and Stern Grove. A complete album of the shoot can be found HERE. Special thanks to Leanne ElRod Rodriguez for being an amazing makeup artist.
And here’s a short video I shot of us having fun behind the scenes:
