Minho - Festas e Romarias

In Minho the time is not counted by the conventional parameters. Everything happens by the calendar of popular festivities and pilgrimages. The heat and the sowing come with "The Crosses" and the harvests are done by São Miguel. The Saint John marks the Summer Solstice as the "Saint Luzia, which draws at night and gives the day", marks the winter solstice.

From the cradle to an old age, the clash of rockets, the clamor of processions, the sound of field drums and music bands, sediment and solidify this culture as the sun and snow carve the granite of the region.

Who is born and lives in this environment cannot fail to feel touched by the phenomenon. An outside observer may have a vew with more 'objectively' but not necessarily a more true.

In this context, these photos result from a conscious inner conflict between the feeling of belonging and a self-critical view of the surrounding cultural / religious milieu. Rather than making readings or judgments, these pictures are intended to provide an outside observer, a kind of 'cave view'; the mirror and the feeling of those who live here.
