Mizraim Cárdenas (Morelia, Mexico): Vispera, 2008

Vispera (the night before). The unperceivable deem candlelight in our eyes prepares, during the day, the way for the return of souls. The devote families recall their dead the night before and prepare themselves to bring back all possible memories of the deceased. In this way the sometimes diffused images, and far away in time, are maintained by generations who annually return to the road of this ancestral tradition.
