Celebration of Life

Woman in Oaxaca, Mexico, celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Death is the theme of the two-day festival, which starts on November 1, but it’s not focused on the macabre. Rather, as Your Shot photographer Daniel Kudish notes, it’s “an incredible celebration of life and a beautiful way to remember those who have passed.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
