Boi de Igatu

A few from the festival in Igatu, it was hard to photograph the actual procession so we sent most of the time photographing the preparation. The festival itself was in celebration of the village women and the elders - especially those that stayed during the hard times after the diamond mine closed. The highlight of the night for me was when the entire procession made it's way to the edge of town, bringing the celebration to a man that can no longer participate due to his health. The smile on his face and being with all of them inside of the small room was amazing. We are just starting the final edit of the workshop - the next images you will see will be the final edit, on a wall, in frames... somewhere tbd.
