"The most common thing during the day of the dead in Mexico is to take photographs at night when people go to cemeteries, and it's a wonderful thing, magical: there's music and flowers and candles and people praying and singing and drinking. But this year I choose not to go at midnight but in the morning, and I sat there on a grave taking shots of people, the visitors that go there with flowers and mariachis. I took the photos at the main street of the cemetery, using Ina's 1935 film as always and the new Lowy lens. Because the sun was on my back and the grave was under a tree, I was in its shadow. There were plenty of colours, not only in the flowers but in the people's clothes and hats and umbrellas, and the Lowy lens gave me these bright and clear colours. It's really a fantastic lens for straight mobile photography, as if you were not using filters but still using Hipstamatic and taking square shots. And yes, the new case is beautiful too!"
