In Chuquiribamba, Ecuador, there is an intense celebration of the patron saint of Chuquiribamba, San Vicente Ferrer. The town is filled with its inhabitants, those who live there day by day as well as those who left for other lands.
To understand that the spirits of a feast are composed of joy, as well as silences, it is necessary to see those other scenes that keep the calm before the feast, and the rests between shouts and prayers. To approach in a way that not only shows the essence of the festival, which remains almost intact since it was erected in the early twentieth century, but to show all the new elements that mean it; all those contexts that are joining the context that keeps the people, what belongs to them, what defines them, what represents them.
This work was made within the framework of the visual laboratory RELATOS EN TERRITORIO Vol.II organized by the Fluxus Foto collective.
