January through May, on film

A selection of the photos I took while in Mexico, from January through the end of May at the beginning of this year.

I spent all of January in Mexico City, then stayed in Oaxaca for February and part of March, then went back to Mexico City right when the pandemic was beginning to spread there. Enrique and I quarantined ourselves in our apartment for nearly two months before deciding that the most important thing was to be closer to our families. So I went home to Olympia and he packed up and moved back to Oaxaca.

These photos show the last months of feeling safe around other people before the pandemic arrived–in the big city, with friends and family, and standing against injustice together.
