Since the days of Mictecacihuatl and Mictlantecuhtli, Mexico has been captivated in one form or another by mortality. Diablos, calaveras, cempazuchitl, crucifixes, blood, sweetbreads, murals, and devotions: Mexicans pay tribute to their lost families in every part of their world. The month of November bares special mentioning, as Mexicans in the campo cease work for a few days and nights to give hearty homage to their forebearers.

Mexico Me Mata is an on-going documentation of the exuberance and endurance in the face of mortality in rural Mexico.
