It is a time of a whole range of emotions – from joy to sorrow, and it’s a time to recognize death as part of the circle of life and face it head on. It is a challenge for a photographer, as most of the interesting events occur while it is dark. I’ve tried to capture some of the meotion and excitement of this special time in Mexico.” On November 5th, 2012, Jim presented an hour long photo workshop to 30 members and guest of the Oaxaca Lending Library.
