Photographer's Note

I often am amazed how we humans are obsessed with death. In central and southern Mexico the holiday on October 31 is called day of the skulls. This tradition may have been traced back to the Aztecs. It was brought in sync with all saints day or all hollows eve. There are festivals, food and gifts put on private alters. These trinkets can now be found throughout North America as keepsakes. This place I visited had hundreds of them.
