All Saints


Cemetries are generally very ornated  and colourful in Latin America. Here I re-created one of them on a charming sandy path. I spent a few days around 3 famous cemetries in Jujuy (North Argentina) and took photographs around the 1rst, 2nd and 3rd of November: All Saints Days. At that period they change the flowers, all made of plastic unless they would not last. They give to eat and drink and even to smoke to the souls of their beloved deads. So here is one of my collage made up with what I saw. Among that see the lovely angels in the trees or the llamas of coton & dried flowers made by children at school. This photo is very rich of symbols about the death cults… and yet very joyful.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ornate.”
