Bullfight – Barrancos (Portugal) 29th August, 2017

People gather on the square mid afternoon, drinking and snacking and chatting about the previous night party or the bulls behaviour in the morning. I wanted to know the names of the “matadors” which were the Colombian Guerrita Chico and the Spanish Fernando Beltran. I didn’t know much, if anything about them, but it wasn’t overly important. Being part of it, and shooting from the inside was my main goal.

Ogoh Ogoh in Mengwi

As with everything that is Hindu related, this celebration seeks balance: in this case, a purification from all the noxious spiritual human practices, committed throughout the year. These ones are portrayed as demons, made of bamboo, styrofoam and paper, on ephemeral figures which can reach a few metres in hight. Some can be quite elaborate, with exquisite design and engineering, vibrant colours and fancy led lights.
