In line with Mexico’s long history of revolutionary art the walls of Oaxaca have for years also been a canvas for expressions of social anger and protest. As we walked around the streets of the city in the days leading up to ‘los muertos’ we noticed a huge range of styles and messages. Most though not all has references to death and is quite temporary. And in common with own need to include Joshua in my photographs I have found that the space and the example provided by these muralists is quite apt .. and poignant. Best to study each photo carefully as I too sometimes find it hard to track him down.
