Puebla, Mexico: Churches, Swooning Saints, Morbido Fest, Santa Muerte, Souls in Purgatory and Day of the Dead

Part of the Morbid Anatomy team has just returned from our trip to Puebla, Mexico, where we attended the fabulous and revelatory Morbidofest. Special congratulations to filmmaker in residence Ronni Thomas, whose short film on Victorian anthropomorphic taxidermist Walter Potter, The Man who Married Kittens, won an award there!

Photos above, of some of what we saw, including churches, souls in purgatory, paintings of dead nuns, reliquary effigies, Santa Muerte shrines and sanctuaries, and day of the dead celebrations. You can see many more photos--all by our creative director Joanna Ebenstein--here, here, here, here and here.
