2009

Esta es una tradición de mi vecindario desde hace 100 años. Un grupo de hombres salen a cortar las palmas que usan las iglesias en semana santa. Al bajar son recibidos por familia y vecinos. He seguido esta tradición por años. En 2009 me enfoqué en fotografiar a los niños y cómo los jóvenes siguen la tradición pero usan sus detalles actuales.

This is a 100-years-old tradition from my neighborhood. A group of men go up the mountain to cut the palms used by churches on Holy Week. When they return, they are received by their families and neighbors. In 2009 I focused on photographing the children and the youth, that keep the tradition alive but spice it with modern details.
