Typographic Shadows (Oaxaca)

Oaxaca, Mexico. Most of the signage in the city is flat to the street walls. Typography cut out or carved deeply into the walls gives a welcome dimentionality, casting shadows. The H works both ways.


This message, deeply and perfectly engraved, in outline, into a mud wall, is really subtle. The message: "Ya nunca volveras a enmudecer de emocion" (You will never repress emotions again).
