Documentary photographer Douglas Menuez, who has traveled extensively in Mexico, has a new book of photographs called Heaven, Earth, Tequila, a $39.95 hardcover from Waterside Publishing. As the title implies, the book is mainly about what Waterside calls "the legendary blue agave plant, which has been deeply rooted in Mexican tradition and history for almost 10,000 years." After photographing in and around the town of Tequila in Jalisco State for five years, Menuez, who is repped by @radical.media, has compiled some 70 images, mostly black-and-white documentary shots, interwoven with a travel journal. But we couldn't resist this gorgeous caged bird, a rare foray into color. All publishing profits from the book will be donated to support the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
