All dressed up and nowhere to go. This describes pretty much how I see Mexico's economy these days after all the energy the Mexican government put into reforms that nonetheless represented little in eventual benefit to the people of Mexico. Worse still, Mexico has been feverishly fighting a stronger US Dollar that has been battering the Mexican Peso left and right as global investors hedge against loss in gold and stronger currencies like the aforementioned greenback. Government revenue is also down as the price of oil --representing over 35% of government income-- stays low, part of the reason why President Enrique Peña Nieto stated early this month Mexico would have to tighten its belt into 2016.

One of my initial images circa 2006. I had asked him to pose for the shot; instead, he began to blow into the crucible. When I first came to Mexico, and until recently, you could find these shaman all over the city's largest municipal square -- El Zocalo. I speculate a recent policy move by the federal district authorities has kept them from operating in the area; It has been a while since I've witnessed any shaman executing their alternate medicinal practices at the Zocalo. Instead they have been dispersed to other parts of the downtown area and in dwindling numbers.

Back in 2006 you could still run into photographers in some parts of Mexico City who made a living making images of folks in "touristy" areas. The ubiquity of digital sent most of them into early retirement.
