F-Stop Magazine Black and White Exhibition

Five of my images are included in the F-Stop Magazine #69 Black and White Group Exhibition. I took these photos in 2013 during Day of the Dead celebrations in Nazareno Etla, Oaxaca, where a surreal procession wends its way through the dimly-lit streets at nightfall.

F-Stop Magazine, founded in 2003 by Christy Karpinski and published bi-monthly online, features contemporary photography with each issue based on a particular theme.
