Mexico is one of the first foreign countries I photographed when I was in my 20s (the very first was Haiti). I’ve been there on personal trips and assignments.
It always yields great times, and if I’m fortunate, images I like. It was the first time in my life that I saw houses in color!
I saw people who have been photographed for years, by tourists and photographers, who were still very patient with the intrusions into their lives. As always, the people were the best part of Oaxaca.
Oaxaca is one of many cities in Mexico that I’ve worked on. It is, however, a city I also photographed with 4x5 cameras, but more on that later.
