The Mendoza family lives in a small apartment near one of Mexico City's open markets where they sell the bowls and crafts they make every day. Four generations live in this one house, where the oldest member is great-grandmother Agustina Marcos and the youngest is 2-month old Natalia. Their indigenous background pervades many facets of daily life from the Nahuatl spoken around the house by the family's eldest 3 generations to the intricate designs on the art they paint. The clay they paint on comes from a small town in the state of Guerrero from which the family migrated to make more money in the city. Guerrero is known to be one of the most dangerous places in Mexico, though the Mendozas describe their hometown with blissful nostalgia for the beautiful landscapes and folkloric traditions common to the place. This photo essay is a portrait of Mendoza family life.
