"Illegal Aliens"?
Living in Mexico

This selection of photos depict daily life in the small ranch of Puerto Colorado near the town of Ahuacatlan de Guadalupe in the mountains of Queretero, Mexico.

The images focus on the families to two brothers who I met in the orchards of Arizona, Alejandro and Pedro Estrada. Their hospitality was amazing, as they offered me the opportunity to stay with their families for several months.

Photos include time with family, work, and community festivals. Also, Alejandro and Pedro’s father, Don Jenaro, passed away while I was there. Family came from all over the United States and Mexico to be present.

It should be obvious that these gentlemen are not aliens, but rather fathers, brothers, sons, neighbors and stewards of a rich culture and traditions.
