Day of the Dead Preview: Museo de la Katrina SMA

As the Nobel prize-winning Mexican writer Octavio Paz explained in Labyrinth of Solitude: "The Mexican is familiar with death, jokes about it, caresses it, sleeps with it, celebrates it."

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is my favorite holiday. It's a joyful and blessed celebration of both life and death that can be viewed at the beautiful, new Museo de la Katrina SMA at San Francisco 18.

I turned my photographs of the museum into artwork by the magic of a phone app, a further study from my phone photography class, which seemed more fitting for a tribute to eternal life.

Buen Apetito!, back to food.
