About the Author

Mary J. Andrade has been researching the tradition of Day of the Dead in Mexico for twenty three years. This project that she started in 1987 in Janitzio, Michoacan, has taken her to different states of Mexico to gather information and to photograph a tradition that originated during the pre-Hispanic era. In 2003, Day of the Dead in Mexico was declared as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of of Humanity,” by UNESCO.
This book covers for the first time, the four areas where the P’urhepecha people live in the State of Michoacan. Mary J. Andrade interviewed historians, anthropologists and experts on how Day of the Dead is celebrated in their communities.
Mrs. Andrade has presented over 155 photographic exhibits on Day of the Dead in the United States, Ecuador, Spain, France, Mexico, Egypt and Chile and has published seven other books on the subject. She has been the recipient of many international awards, such as the OHTLI, two Silver Quills and one Silver Lens presented by former presidents of Mexico, Vicente Fox and Ernesto Zedillo.

Her books on Day of the Dead in Michoacan, Oaxaca, Mexico City, Mixquic, Morelos, Puebla, San Luis Potosi, Hidalgo, Tlaxcala and Yucatan have also received the “Latino Literary Hall of Fame” award under different categories.
