by Ron Mader

Oaxaca de Juárez, Mexico – Photos and weavings from Teotitlán del Valle from the Lazo Mendoza family are on display in the month of July at the Comala Restaurant, Allende #109.

fotos y tejidos (photos and weavings)

The town of Teotitlán del Valle conserves its indigenous Zapotec heritage. The photos and weavings document daily life in this town.

The weavings are from the extended family: Sergio Lazo Mendoza, Veronica Lazo Mendoza, Luis Lazo Mendoza, Maricela Sanchez Lopez and Lauriano Garcia. The photos were taken by Veronica Lazo Mendoza.

The exhibition – Fotos y Tejidos – is one in a series of presentations of local Oaxacan crafts and photography hosted by Comala Restaurant. It was facilitated in part by Ron Mader, director of Planeta.com.


In September some of the family’s best work will be given as awards during the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award presentation in Portland, Oregon.
