The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Mexico 2007

Dozens of nude and semi-nude Mexican farmers, men and women, from Veracruz state, protested in front of Bellas Artes Palace, in the heart of Mexico City.
The farmers chose this unusual form of protest to call attention to their claim over lost lands.
They call themselves “Movimiento de los 400 Pueblos” ( Movement of The 400 Villages ).
A former governor and senator at this day, send to jail in only 4 days more of 500 peasants and stolen almost 5000 acres of their land. From time to time, they came to the city to rise their demands for justice, but nobody pays attention to them.

A few months ago.

Day of The Dead

The offerings placed on the altar for Dia de los Muertos usually consist of a wash bowl, basin, razors, soap and other items the traveling spirit can use to clean-up after the journey. Pictures of the deceased are also placed on the altar as well as personal belongings for each person and any other offerings the deceased may enjoy such as a pack of cigarettes or a bottle of tequila. Candles are used to help light the way for the spirits as well as other decorative items such as papel picado (tissue paper cut-outs) wreaths, crosses and flowers. Certain Dia de los Muertos dishes are also placed on the altar to help feed and nourish the traveling souls. Some of these offerings also double as the four main elements of nature — earth, wind, water, and fire. These are represented by movable or light-weight items such as tissue paper cut-outs (wind,) a bowl of water, candles (fire) and food (crops, earth.) Chelsie Kenyon.
