In our Inti-Raymi gallery we feature photographs from a series titled, “Muerte, Culto, y Devoción”, taken by David Trujillo.  David’s photographs captured significant aspects of the indigenous ritual of Day of the Dead in Michoacán, Veracruz, and Tabasco.  These photographs display diverse scenarios that manifest a Mesoamerican ceremony towards their ancestors.
