A good way to learn about this Alabama's photographer.

These looked like relics of voodoo cult

I am all for Dia de los Muertos remembrances, although Dia de los Muertos is usually around Dec 1, although that is a crowded time on the holiday calendar.

Thank you Virginia. Great images.

Good morning, V! Nancy has become acquainted with Spider's daughter through the B'ham celebration of Day of the Dead, held every November 2. Love this image.
Still traveling today?

I've never heard of him and I'm so glad you provided a link. That's a hell of a body of work. World's greatest photographer? That's like asking who was the world's greatest pianist. (It was Horowitz.) There is no Nobel Prize prize committee for the title but this guy is in the running. Your picture gives me a reason to look further.

Thanks for that link. I had heard of him, but didn't know very much about him. What a remarkable life! He was so young when he died, only 64.
