In 2005, I spent a couple weeks in Oaxaca, Mexico. The city of Oaxaca is amazingly beautiful and culturally significant. While in Oaxaca, I captured images of Mexican artists creating wood sculptures called Alebrijes. These fantastical and colorful carved creatures are produced primarily in Mexico City and Oaxaca.
My photographs explore the artistic transformation from a roughly hewn piece of wood, to a finely sculpted piece of art. In the eBook and Video, I explore how Oaxacan craftsmen/women create these unique artistic treasures.
