The Living Passion

Going to meet Jesus, I'm not alone.

Living Passion. Mucuchíes, Venezuela, 2015.

One of the oldest traditions of the Andes mountains takes place every Easter in Mucuchíes, a small Venezuelan village located 9,000 feet above sea level. The passion and death of Christ is enacted in the streets by over 150 adults and children of all ages. They coordinate costumes, makeup, props and music, and they fervently assume their roles. Many of them weep, and all express a heartfelt faith, in a genuine popular expression of a popular culture they have passed on from generation to generation, since 1912. 



I was moved  by this heartfelt event, and glad that I could register this visual testimony.
