Between Life and Death: Day of the Dead
By Harvey Castro
CH’IN KANA GALLERY// Third floor.
Between Life and Death is a project that aims to bring the focus back to the people that live the traditions of Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
In recent times and certainly since the release of the James Bond movie, Spectre (2015), we’ve seen this tradition begin to be treated more as a “festival” and less as an indigenous tradition that dates back to the Aztec Civilization. In this ongoing project I will be visiting and documenting how the people in different regions of Mexico celebrate this special tradition with their families and community as a whole.
