DoBeDo is excited to announce its release of T-shirt #023 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘The Road to Tepeyac’ by Alinka Echeverría.
Echeverría is a Mexican-British artist, working in film and photography. The image for this T-shirt is taken from ‘The Road to Tepeyac’; conceptualised as an immersive photographic installation, The Road to Tepeyac consists of 125 images of devout Mexican pilgrims carrying their personal image of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the anniversary of her apparition in 1531.
“What is the connection between seeing and believing? What is it that makes us need images, crave images in order to feel a connection to the divine?”
The T-shirt includes a 6-set postcard pack, with different images from the series, and a printed insert with the story of the Virgin of Guadalupe. “The Road to Tepeyac” is embroided in white cotton braille on the front, with a colour print of a pilgrim on the back.
This T-shirt can be purchased here (at a discount) as part of the DoBeDo Photographers Series T-shirt Subscription.
