In Photos: All Souls Procession

Nate and I attended Tucson's All Souls Procession this last Sunday night. Begun in 1990 as a performative art piece by Tucson artist Susan Johnson in remembrance of her father, the Tucson All Souls procession has become an annual event attracting nearly 35,000 participants to come, walk, and remember those who have gone before. Inspired by the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertas, the All Souls Procession is meant to be a ritual that allows public mourning, reflection, and celebration of death, a universal human experience. These photos were taken at Tucson's 2012 All Souls Procession.

A parade of color
Of all ages
Of all cultures
Of all talents
Of causes
Of music
And of ghosts in the night
