About the Author

Mary J. Andrade has been researching the tradition of Day of the Dead in Mexico for 24 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, UNESCO declared Day of the Dead in Mexico as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.”

In this third book of the series Through the Eyes of the Soul, Day of the Dead in Mexico, she presents her findings on how this tradition is honored in Mexico City, Mixquic and several towns of the state of Morelos, including its capital city of Cuernavaca.

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 to her 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.
