Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos as it’s known in Spanish, took place in Mexico in early November with beautiful imagery captured of the celebrations. Honoring the lives of lost family members and friends, this festival sees alters full of candles and food, bunches of marigold flowers set upon graves, ‘pan de muerto’ treats being shared and of course, incredible costumes on display as processions take place along the streets, remembering those who have died.
