Cade Martin, a renowned photographer and long time visitor to San Miguel de Allende,  Mexico, visited the town to capture the spirit of the Day of the Dead festival. During his four-night stay, Cade and his crew set up a small mobile studio and took photos in the street.

“The idea is to create tight portraits of existing faces with the hopes of photographing real people that we see walking around,” said Cade. “We were looking to find inspiring people who are already dressed up for the festival.”

Several local art galleries helped Cade Martin’s efforts out, including the Guiness Gallery, Moyshen the Gallery and Fernando M. Diaz Art Studio. All three are located in La Fabrica La Aurora, served as a staging area for Cade Martin’s efforts. Helena Moreno Fine Arts Gallery in downtown San Miguel de Allende also served as a staging ground to help photograph the festival.
