While the trip was mostly about bring someplace warm, and racking up some family bonding time (of which there was plenty), I was always trying to snap photos that could lend some inspiration down the road. Everything about Mexico is super-saturated in colour: the food, the houses, the traditional clothing, the flowers (oh! the flowers)
When I looked back to review our photos, I found I had taken a lot of photos of graffiti and posters. Along with the vivid colour that I associated with the entire trip, the graffiti also contained strong political messages. Rural indigenous people in Mexico continue to live in poverty and until there is a sea change, there will always be a not-entirely-silent current of unrest.
From a design point of view, the messages stopped me in my tracks.
