Currently, we have 5 dogs (a new one last week). If anyone is interested in our pack we have pics on insta at: @rambling.fam
The idea for the book evolved during the early days of Covid lock down. In Oaxaca there were considerably more dogs being left on the street at that time that needed, at the least vaccinations, and at best new homes.
We were also isolated from the creative community we are normally part of. Collaborating with the artists who donated their work to the book was a way to stay in touch while raising money to help animals in need. The theme of Perros y Palenques came from a series of images I had been collecting since I started documenting the mezcal process back in 2013 – I asked artists in Oaxaca to respond to the series of images, either with their own new work, or with interventions into the photos.
