This series documents beloved, community-led celebrations — inside Oaxaca's communities of Santo Tomás Jalieza, San Martín Tilcajete, Zaachila and Teotitlán del Valle. This unique time of each year illuminates the buoyant fellowship and revere of impassioned faith — mostly missing, has been lost, or never existed north of the border. From sunrise to sunset, the most unique, color-filled acts of devotion, and/or rebellion blissfully overtakes each of these communities. 
These photographs document Pre-Lenten celebrations, and Lent Carnavales — from late February and early March 2019-2023.
