Ann Murdy has been photographing Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico for more than twenty years. As her hauntingly beautiful images show, in Mexico death is considered a part of life, something to be celebrated, not feared. This unforgettable book features ninety of Murdy’s most stunning images of Day of the Dead celebrations from three rural Mexican villages, a conversation between her and curator Cesaréo Moreno, and an essay by Mexican American writer Denise Chávez.
