Sismo

This month I was back in Mexico for the first time since the earthquake of past September.  My brother Mike had died a few days before the quake   I left the city quickly just missing the catastrophe.  I was hesitant to return but Mexico City always calls me back.  One of my favorite places on earth.  Here in the states the media is to consumed with covering the orange trash in the white house to report on the catastrophe in Mexico.  Needless to say they could use help.  There are many buildings collapsed in the neighborhoods of Roma norte, Roma sur, Juarez and Condesa. Closed streets, condemned buildings and people without homes also populate these areas.  These folks are our neighbors.  Below is a selection of photos I took while there.  Coming up this December 16 at Gigantic Brewing I will be hosting a fund raising art show to benefit the victims of the quake.
