@voguerunway On a trip to the city of Oaxaca in southwestern Mexico last summer to shoot a campaign for the ethical home décor company St. Frank, photographer @PhilipNix wrangled an extra week’s stay to travel the surrounding region, immersing himself in the world of the artisans whose red clay ceramics and ironwood utensils he was tasked with capturing.
The resulting images provide an intimate view into the working lives of the craftspeople carrying on traditions that stretch back generations, from the painstaking process of shaping the clay and cutting the ironwood with machetes to their lunchtime breaks devouring tortillas at a local market—with a stop at a mezcal distillery or two.
Along the way, Nix also documented the vibrant colors and intricate, hand-crafted accessories that characterize Oaxaca’s regional style. Tap the link in our bio to see his photos. Photographed by @philipnix
