Back in July, my friends Antonieta and Lucio invited me to their hometown in Oaxaca, to photograph the Fiesta de la Preciosa Sangre de Cristo or: the Fiesta of the Precious Blood of Christ. The fiesta in Teotitlán del Valle lasts 11 days and features three spectacular processions where hundreds of women and girls walk silently through the cobblestone streets in matching blouses and dresses, supporting baskets with images of religious icons on their heads.
