Celebrating Day of the Dead: A Visual Journey of the Soul

Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is a holiday that pays tribute to the dead and also celebrates life. This spiritual tradition of Mexican origin consists of ancestral rituals to honor the memories of deceased loved ones. The life-affirming holiday is observed every year on November 1-2 and has become an important part of popular culture across the U.S. and beyond. To provide a more visual illustration of this holiday, I showcase the film photography of my friend Viv Delgadillo.
