Pictures of people I met during my trip to Mexico in November 2021. In other countries, it was much easier for me to photograph people. In Mexico, many declined, especially in the more rural areas and in the indigenous highlands of Chiapas. People there seem very proud, and sometimes skeptical of tourists. In the touristy regions of Yucatan and Oaxaca, however, most people grinned at me and agreed when I asked if I could take their portrait. I always used these little encounters to practice my very rudimentary Spanish. All pictures taken with a Sony Alpha 7 II and SEL85/1.8.
