SHOT 4/29/23 6:05:35 PM - A brightly colored personal shrine featuring Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in a side alley in Todos Santos, Mexico. Todos Santos is a town on the Pacific coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, backed by the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range. Popular with artists, it’s known for its many art galleries and a funky vibe. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a powerful and ubiquitous symbol of Mexican identity because some guess that Our Lady of Guadalupe's skin tone matches that of Mexico's indigenous population: light brown. She is as much revered for her striking similarity to the vanquished native Mexican population as she is for being the mother of God. (Photo by Marc Piscotty © 2023)
