something’s different about this one…

door, central Merida, Mexico      2018

Hidden by heavy walls and behind narrow doors, the unique homes of the people in this neighborhood are obscured to passersby, but here is a mark of the personality of the individual artist and individual resident. Until you get close, the little stenciled mushrooms are easy to miss. But as you walk by, you realize the intentionality of their creation and of their continued presence–they are something to mark this place and its people as more than ‘a face in the crowd.’
