Joaquin Trujillo: Día de los Muertos

View Artist

Mexican Photographer Joaquin Trujillo’s newest personal project was created in honor of today’s Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Day. The annual event is a centuries-old tradition that has roots in Indigenous culture and Catholicism and, while celebrated throughout the Americas, it is primarily a Mexican tradition meant to remember family and friends that have passed on. For his series, Joaquin created portraits honoring his cultural heritage and the traditional clothing and face paint that are seen on Día de los Muertos.
