Por Oaxaca is a record of responses to two seemingly straightforward photographs I took in Oaxaca, Mexico, and then sent to a selection of local (US) and international artists.

The diversity of work stemming from the same image brings out issues of cultural tourism, analog vs. digital technology, image-media mediation over our engagement with reality, cultural aesthetics, and the prevalence of a western hegemony over contemporary artistic production.
