"A riot of color and commotion, Oaxaca is Mexico at its most authentic and spontaneous." —Travel & Leisure
Each year, a quarter million Americans visit the Mexican state of Oaxaca, an ancient land where indigenous, pre-Columbian, and colonial worlds exist side by side. Photographer Judith Haden offers a pictorial love letter to Oaxaca, illuminating its everyday life in supersaturated blues, dazzling yellows, and pinks so hot they vibrate on the page.
Compelling portraits of market vendors, folk art and artists, fiestas, and historic sites are matched by insightful prose. More than a dozen essays explore the street markets, religious festivals, artes populares, music, architecture, gastronomy, history, and language, tracing the palpable features of the faces of Oaxaca.
With more than two hundred breathtaking color photographs, this volume captures the spirit and traditions of a valley whose dynamic culture, hospitable people, and rugged beauty have bewitched travelers since the time of Cortez.

Oaxaca has been Judith Haden's photographic passion for five years. Fluent in Mexico's language and culture since her Peace Corps training there in the late 1960s, she divides her time between Central America and Seattle, where she has a studio and owns Casita, a store that sells the work of Mexican folk artists.
