These photographs were taken within a few hundreds miles of Mexico City. They show nothing of Mexican cathedrals, public buildings, or ruins. They do not undertake to present Mexico.

To me the beauty of this country lies in the people of the land and their simple mode of living. Their faces are exciting with a strange beauty, a beauty that has in it centuries of suffering. Their eyes sparkle with a strange pride.

Everywhere I found the people friendly and patient with the mechanics of the camera, and so completely unaffected that anything but a direct presentation of the scene before me seemed insincere.
