    Tara Pixley, PhD. This series provides a look inside the everyday experiences of San Luis Potosi that feels both celebratory, contemplative,and vividly rendered. I wish there was a lot more information to connect us to the people in the frames, but as a starting point for engaging audience interest in this community's story, it's very well-done.
