When going to this Mexican village in the mountains of Jalisco, we always stayed with a family that had many children. My friend started to paint with the children and we noticed that they were amazing artists and showed us their indigenous culture through their painting. Pictured are the colored feet of these Huichol children, living in the village of Tuxpan de Bolaños in Jalisco, Mexico. This was one of my first color film pictures taken in the country, a place I would subsequently spend many years.
