Mindling will present the work of the Living Threads Project, a product of two years of field work covering more than 50 Indigenous communities, it is the most complete photographic documentation of Oaxaca’s traditional dress and the people who wear it ever to be undertaken. The award-winning photographs will be published in the new book Oaxaca Stories in Cloth, a Book about People, Belonging, Identity, and Adornment. In the words of Ana Paula Fuentes, the founding director of the Textile Museum of Oaxaca, “…nothing like this exists in Mexico or the world. It is a jewel of a textile registry, but done artistically, with sensitivity, with ingenuity and with love.”
