Cananea, Sonora, Mexico

Roadside Crosses:  Accidents happen, lives are lost, and survivors grieve. In Mexico, it has been a longstanding tradition to mark fatal accident sites with memorials bearing the names of the deceased. Here, a lone roadside cross in the Sonoran Desert was still being tended eight years after the fatal accident took place. From this cross we learn something we don't usually learn in a cemetery: where death occurred. [1988]
