Dia de los Muertos

I am a professional photographer anchored in Leith. Our four-year-old twins were dressed up for their nursery Halloween party in the style of the Mexican festival of the dead. One was in a small huff because she thought she looked like a clown. The contrast in their facial expressions captures something about the Dia de los Muertos itself – in which joyful celebration co-exists with the sadness of loss – and about our experience of having twin children, who constantly show themselves to be more beautifully different from one another than we would ever have expected.
