Fallas 2012. Street portraits (1).

The main characters in this festivity are the “falleros” and “falleras”. They belong to different quarters of the city and they dress typical clothes. In they case of women, clothes and hairstyle can be very elaborated and heavy. After a week of festivities, you can find a lot of expressions in the faces of the people. Pride, happiness, fatigue, abstraction… Many feelings and thoughts are drawn in their faces. These shots were taken in the streets of Valencia and Burriana (E Spain).

  1. What a beautiful women, dresses, hairs,… I loved them so much… You did a great photographs… I love these kind of dresses…. I am so nostalgic one. By the way I can imagine the music too… But in my mind there is Flamenco… am I right to think of this, or… I would like to learn this too dear Santi. Thank you, with my love, nia

    • Thanks, Mike!! The shots were really easy as they were enjoying so much the festivity and the didn’t care about being shot. And the happiness and pride that they have result in their really great expressions.
