LAURIE ZUCKERMAN'S PHOTOGRAPHS OF LA VIRGEN DE SOLEDAD IN OAXACA, MEXICO FROM DECEMBER 18, 2008


Last year, Laurie Zuckerman was in Oaxaca, Mexico partaking in the colonial city's stunning December festivals. Here are my photos from La Basilica del Virgen de Soledad, Oaxaca's patron saint, on the night the town comes out to celebrate her—December 18. A procession of patient worshippers spilled out of the church into the twilight evening. Afterwards revelers danced on the plaza with flower baskets balanced on their heads.

Makes me long for Oaxaca Laurie. I haven't been back in a few years.
Maybe we can meet there one day.
