Vintage Phoenix Collection: Steve Davis’ Mexican Folk Art

by Adam Benavides | Sunday, August 4, 2013

Steve Davis opens a tattered old book and flips through the pages covered with photos and descriptions of Mexican folk art. He lands on the right image and points to a standing figure of a woman, dressed in white and carrying a blue umbrella, in the artistic style of the Dia de los Muertos holiday. This figure is “Katrina,” the physical version of which is standing five feet away at the foot of a bed in Davis’ Paradise Valley home. Video by Adam Benavides
