From the newly published collaborative Day of the Dead themed series with artist Sergio Sánchez Santamaría "A donde irán los muertos". Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition that was first brought to Los Angeles in 1971 by the non-profit Self Help Graphics & Art. It honors the dead and it is a mix of Indigenous and European beliefs. This print combines two photographs of Día de los muertos celebrations at SHG&A, one from the 70's and another from 2000's. This ritual celebration has gone through transformations since it has been brought from Mexico and into the Chicano community but it remains rooted in the tradition of communing with dead ancestors and celebrating their lives.
