Photographer's Note

This is the tomb of a young man who died at the age of 20, 12 years ago in Oaxaca Mexico. Every year, his sister dresses up his tomb buys food for friends and family, and brings in a Mariachi band to sing in his honour. It seemed to be the most popular tomb at Oaxaca's cementery.

Every year, on November 1, people in Mexico dress up their loved one's tombs to remember them, as at thsi date itis beleived that the dead come back to share time with the living.
