Photographer: Helen Dowling
"I do try to celebrate the important dates for Mexican people ... [for example] The Day of The Dead, which is 1st of November, where you remember your loved ones, who are dead."
Listen to an excerpt from an interview with the sitter here
This portrait was taken as part of a series of group and one-to-one portrait photography workshops led by photographer Marysa Dowling. Each participant located a portrait sitter and decided on a location where the shoot could take place. Marysa then met the photographer and sitter on location, and supported them to produce their portrait. Afterward they met together at The Photographers' Gallery, as a group and with their sitters, to look at what each other produced.
