Oaxaca: A Living Still Life

I like random connections. I like meeting people through work and then seeing them again on the other side of the world.

A couple of years ago I shot a project in Milan with Stephen Torres, after we were introduced by Jackie De Giorgio.
After few days in Mexico City and a week in the incredible Chiapa de Corzo, my Mexican journey continued in Oaxaca.
There, this January, Stephen and I found ourselves enjoying warm days in Mexico, celebrating good food, music, and the launch of his new Mezcal at the beautiful Casa Oaxaca.

The light and the colours, the lines and shadows from the architecture – everything in the tiny capital of Oaxaca state feels purposeful.

Oaxaca: a living still life.

Here my personal recommendation if you are planning a trip to Oaxaca.

Start the day with a coffee at Café El Volador.
If you are into nature and succulents, visit the Jardín Etnobotánico de Oaxaca – unfortunately, you can only access the garden with a guided tour, but it’s still worth it!
Stop for a drink at Sabina Sabe. Get some tacos con mole at Las Quince Letras.
Treat yourself with a 8-course lunch at Criollo, designed by Javier Sánchez for the Chef Enrique Olvera.

Enjoy the beauty and the calm of Oaxaca.
