Day of the Dead Blog

In 1987, Mary J. Andrade began a research project in Janitzio Michoacan, about the celebration of Day of the Dead. Every year she covers a different state of Mexico to gather information and to photograph a tradition that originated during the pre-Hispanic era. She has interviewed historians, anthropologists and experts in how Day of the Dead is celebrated in their communities, a tradition that has evolved through the centuries and has become an important element of the Mexican spirit and culture.
