The 57th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "En Vista takes us on a rare and astonishing journey into the transformation of the human form after death. In the rural cemeteries of Yucatán, Mexico the dead are not normally embalmed before burial. Typically, the remains are unearthed after three years in the ground and transferred to an ossuary or makeshift container for all eternity and for all to view. En Vista opens with an insightful excerpt from The Labyrinth of Solitude by Octavio Paz."
