My sister, Natalie Franco, was just recently interviewed as well.

Field Notes

Generosity, I've come to understand, binds communities together. The labor, the pain and the strength that each day demands is something quite remarkable to witness. Their work, their lives, move around and through each other for survival. The efforts of the day are palpable. And, there's a sense of gratitude that comes with exhaustion and rest. Everytime I leave the campos, I'm always hopeful for a quick return.

 

 

 

Notes from November

As we phase out of November, just wanted to share some images and thoughts. November was a great month here in Mexico. The seasons finally changed and we got a break from the heat:) It was also Dia De Los Muertos; which was a fantastic cultural and visual experience. I also spent more time out in the campo working on a new portrait series about women and the land, as seen in the pic above. Looking forward to Christmas and all celebrations that come with it here in San Miguel de Allende. Thanks for reading. Nic
