A Trail of Marvels: A Memoir of Mexico and Days of the Dead

Now Available

Trail of Marvels Book Cover

Over a career spanning more than 50 years, Geoff Winningham has created a series of original books, combining his photography with his own original writing or appropriated text.  In the process, he has explored and documented a wide range of social, cultural, geographical, and historical phenonema. The subjects of his work have ranged from professional wrestling, destruction derbies, and high school football to vernacular architecture and the landscape of the Gulf Coast of Texas and Mexico.


A Trail of Marvels: A Memoir of Mexico and Days of the Dead is an artfully structured narrative of  Winningham’s most important project to date. It is at once a visual documentation and a learned guide to the history and the continuing traditions of the Day of the Dead. This photography book on the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) is also a personal memoir of his travels over the past 30 years to photograph that event, and a love poem to the people of Mexico, who welcomed him as he traveled.

In the Eyes of Our Children: Houston, An American City

EOC book cover.jpg

“Towers of glass and steel, mirroring the sky. A Zen garden. The world’s largest rodeo. The rocket that took men from the earth to the moon. One man’s monument to the power of the orange. Ball games played in colossal stadiums. A refuge for butterflies. All this and much more, the essence of a great American city.”

296 pages / 329 color photographs and monoprints

by Houston school children

Preface by Mayor Sylvester Turner/ Afterword by Stephen Klineberg

In the Eyes of Our Children: Houston, An American City, is a unique visual record of the fourth largest and most ethnically diverse city in the United States. Houston is seen through the eyes of 132 elementary and middle school children, who worked for six years to create a lasting visual record of their home and place in the world. This book will be treasured in future years as a rare and beautiful document of the city at this moment in its history. Fewer than 30 copies (from the original 3,500) of this remarkable book remain for sale. The remaining copies, each signed by the participating children, are available for sale for  $150.
