I am intrigued by the relationship between human and dog, how it develops, changes and grows; moments that make you realize things you would have otherwise never noticed; the happiness that comes from their companionship and friendship. Here are a few photographs of little Mezcal over the past few months, enjoy! © Nikhol Esteras […]
I had never photographed a funeral before, so this was a first for me. There is something visually stunning about it all, the raw unfiltered emotion and the deep connection brought about by loss and memories of the deceased. My grandfather was a remarkable human being. He was a medic in World War II, raised a family, acted as a father figure to my father’s friends whose home situations were extraordinarily difficult and taught me to play a damn good […]

I really enjoyed this family session with such beautiful, intelligent, down-to-earth people. The session was shot at a local park called Las Canteras, which boasts some of the most beautiful natural scenery in a urban setting I’ve yet encountered, as well as truly fantastic light, thus making for an ideal photo session location. It was a pleasure to spend the day with great people in a stunning place!
Barbacoa is prepared in different ways in different parts of Mexico. On this occasion in the community of Asunción Nochixtlán located in Mixteca region of Oaxaca, the lamb meat comes from the family farm and is prepared without chiles or spices. The meat’s natural flavors and the smokey taste are the result of the cooking process. To understand how the meat is cooked and how it is served, be sure to read the captions that accompany each photo.
