ritual

Discovered the work of spanish photographer Cristina Garcia Rodero quite by accident…very fond of her work. Cristina documents Spanish rites and fiestas and is primarily focused on the sacred and the profane. I also like her works with children. She is particularly interested in  rituals and celebrations of the religious sort in particular, that are fading from culture. I have to say, I’m quite jealous of cultures infused with a sort of pagan wildness, the European and Latin American cultures in particular. You just don’t see it in a country founded by Puritans. We hawk the idea of freedom, and yet repress and even reject human responses to  religion, rites of passage, and human sexuality that are primal, magical, and perfectly natural.
