Photographer's Note

Oaxaca is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of the same name. The city relies heavily on tourism, which is based on its large number of colonial-era structures as well as the native Zapotec and Mixtec cultures and archeological sites. Along with the archeological site of Monte Alban, it was named a World Heritage Site in 1987.
