Photographer Marcey Jacobsen 19ll-2009 (Homage)

Friends Marcey Jacobsen (left) and Kiki Suarez (right) at Hotel Casa Mexicana in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Taken during my last visit some years ago after lunch together. Remembering and honoring Marcey today and my two friends.

Photo by Marcey Jacobsen from the street outside her house and garden in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.

Marcey passed over on July 26, 2009. It was a privilege to know her.

You can find her photos of life in the highlands of Chiapas in her book called The Burden of Time published by Stanford University Press. I believe she lived in San Cristobal for at least 50 years, spending time in New York to earn money to support her life and photography.

She gave me this print and another as a reward for getting some developing trays to her during the early 90's. I put the large stainless steel trays in my suitcases to Oaxaca. A man I met in Oaxaca took them to Marcey in San Cristobal
