Time Passes .....celebrating el Dia de Los Muertos

Photo by Antonio Turok, "Dia de los Muertos" 1976 in Mexico. Where I live these days has a few gentlemen who look like the guy in foto. Time passes, but death never dies.

Family altar in Huatla de Jimenez, the Mazatec area of Oaxaca, taken in 1976

Some photos from Artes de Mexico's edition on Day of the Dead from 1993.

Creating altars, decorating graves and making a ritual are all arts related to the celebration of Day of the Dead, or Todos Santos.
