Synopsis: For over a decade, Dana Salvo has traveled throughout the central highlands and southern states of Mexico with his family. Welcomed into the homes of rural people, including Purpechan, Chamulan, and Zinacantan Indians, as few have been before, Salvo was permitted the rare privilege of photographing their private and deeply personal home environments. Central to each interior was the altarcito, or home altar. These dazzling large-format color photographs depict the altars in all their glory and meticulous detail. Some are constructed for special holidays--Christmas or the Day of the Dead, for instance--while others commemorate beloved family members using photographs, mementoes, and the deceased's favorite foods. The essays provide the cultural and historic background to the practice of constructing domestic altars, linking the ancient traditions with modern customs.

About the Author: Dana Salvo is an artist living in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Ramn Gutirrez, the volume editor, is professor of ethnic studies at the University of California, San Diego; Salvatore Scalora, an independent curator, is a professor of art at the University of Connecticut; and; William Beezley is Neville Penrose chair of history at Texas Christian University. Amalia Mesa-Bains is currently the director of the Institute for Visual Public Art, California State University at Monterey Bay.
