My Romance with Mexico taught me a wonderful lesson about my profession. I need to feel the memories, hopes, and passions of an entire people. I have to lose myself in their oldest beliefs, their sacred dances, the laughter of their children, and the wisdom of their elders. I searched the landscapes with my cameras and I experienced the warmth and wonder of their customs. I find the world of Mexico passionate, colorful, and framed by song. The architecture, the beautiful churches, and the grandest public art anywhere is but a few of her charms. Romancing her is truly special.
For the 2010 Mexican Bicentennial celebration in Dallas, I created a body of work consisting of 41 pieces in conjunction with the Mexican consulate, celebrating the history of the country. The work was displayed the following year in Austin.
