This Leads To The After-World? Do They Have Drink Specials There?
In this eerily other-worldly series, James Pomerantz captures the intersection of two very different earthly realms.
Tourists splash, play, and float in Mexican waters once used by Mayans for sacrificial religious offerings. The single shaft of light in the images is created by a cenote, a geological formation that sounds rather fancy, but is basically just a sinkhole that drops sunlight on a subterranean swimming pool. Mayans believed cenotes were portals to the after-world, but these vacationers, all of whom are shown reacting naturally to the space, just seem to prefer the light over the darkness. Who can blame them with all the spirits swimming below?
