Pátzcuaro • Day of the Dead
A sampling of photographs taken in and around Lake Pátzcuaro in Michoacán, Mexico. Most are taken in the few days leading up to and during el Día de los Muertos - the Day of the Dead celebration that is held every year on November 1st and 2nd. There are a number of islands in the lake- two of which are featured here: Janitzio - which is at the center of the lake and very well-known. It is steep sided with stairs winding up to the top where a statue of Morelos dominates the view. The island of Pacanda is much smaller and more primitive. Jim and I shot a documentary film there and you can see more about it on our website:
