What was supposed to be a 2 week trip, turned into a temporary move. Yes, my husband and I are currently residing in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. This small colonial town sits quietly in the high desert mountains of Central Mexico and it's here where Matt is currently working. One of perks to being freelance (yes, there are a few) is flexibility with my mobility... so I came down to join him. While Matt is busy working on his newest project, I've jumped on the opportunity to start one as well. Hope you enjoy the images:)
As part of a project I'm working on, about the current water crisis in Mexico and more specifically in and around Central Mexico, I've been spending time photographing a small rural community outside of San Miguel De Allende (SMA), called Cruz del Palmar. There are over 400 communities outside of SMA who are struggling and surviving without sufficient drinking water. Government and both local and international NGO's are taking on varying initiatives to help aid and replenish this dire situation. Clean drinking water has been a long standing national concern for decades. Last year, 'the right to water' for all citizens was even implemented into Mexico's Constitution. Below is a sneak preview of life in Cruz Del Palmar.
