The Mexico B&W Series
No. 3 - Street Scene, Huautla de Jimenez, Oaxaca
This road led out of town and eventually to the home of Maria Sabina. In the '60s and '70s this little village was the destination of travelers from all over the world in search of the psychedelic mushrooms for which it was famous. As a consequence there was often trouble between the authorities and the strange and exotic looking visitors.
It was shot on Kodak Tri-X Pan. I was shooting for a Newseek journalist at the time working on a story about the "magic mushrooms".
It is the third of a series of my historic black and white photography of Mexico in the '60s and '70s. Watch for and collect all of them!
As it must, it measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and is a signed and numbered edition.
