Great photos and even a book called Our Lady of Guadalupe A Journey are available online thanks to photojournalist Joshua Trujillo. According to the blog by Joshua Trujillo:
"Catholics from Northern New Mexico made a journey from Mexico City with a 12 foot-tall, 4,000 pound statue of the Patron Saint of the Americas. The statue was placed in front of the Santuario de Guadalupe, the oldest church in the United States honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe. The journey to New Mexico followed the Camino Real, the historic route taken from Mexico City to the northern territory of New Mexico by early Spanish settlers."
"Working as a visual journalist for more than 15 years, Joshua Trujillo uses his craft of still and moving images to document the unique and the ordinary. He is comfortable working in uncontrollable environments or in situations where he can collaborate with a subject to create the perfect storytelling visuals. We all know that cameras and skilled photographers are ubiquitous, but capturing moments that successfully convey an authentic and emotional story is what he strives for."
"His still photography has been published in almost every major U.S. newspaper and magazine, including on the front page of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and full page features in People Magazine following the 2010 Haiti earthquake and in Sports Illustrated during the Seahawks run to the Super Bowl. His photographs regularly appear on the Associated Press wire service and countless media websites. He has produced work for Fortune 500 companies and in his current role is the chief visual storyteller for Starbucks Coffee Company. His work as Director of Photography and Editor on Starbucks first original series, Upstanders, was recognized by PR Week as the "best brand film of 2016."
Josh is on the board of the Society of Professional Journalists, Western Wash. and is a co-founder of Northwest Photojournalism, a group that supports and educates photojournalists in the Pacific Northwest. He also can be found occasionally teaching photography classes to everyone from college students to first-graders."
