Photographer's Note

I spent 7 years in Mexico in the mid 90s to the end of 2002, and it is a place that I still think about fondly and quite often. A beautiful country with beautiful people. Certanily the place where I really started developing my love of photography, of ruins and of festivals (not to mention chile sauce).

I have recently started scanning in some of my slides from those days - slowly, but surely, - with all the associated problems of scanning: a little bit over saturated and some loss of detail.

This is one of my earliest and still favourite dance photographs and is 'Mexico in one photograph' in my own memories. People, colours, confusion and action. Reality is slightly blurred at the edges.

The title, by the way, comes from an Octavio Paz quote which has stuck in my mind.
