Life and Death - Mexican Rhapsody

  • Photographer
    Giuseppe Cardoni

Praying seems to be the least worry in Mexico, where the mourning is exhibited with sounds, costumes, music, dances and colors, but also with disturbing masks and presences, making the fear and the restlessness almost familiar and friendly. Sacred and profane touch each other, just like life and death, until they become one. There are those who light candles, those who spend the whole night on the tombs eating, talking, playing, dressing up, parading in processions with carnival masks.
