The crazy things we do for religion. Here, this boy is amongst thousands of people who drag their crosses through the streets of Iztapalapa, in the south of Mexico city every year on Good Friday. They follow the same course that an actor playing Jesus will do later in the day (Although he is being whipped and taunted, before being nailed to the cross). They all do this in their bare feet on the scorching hot tarmac, resulting in many burns and blisters throughout the day.

Shot on Kodak Portra 400 film, on a Minolta XD7.

Signed and numbered on front.

Printed on Fuji Crystal archive paper with a semi-matt finish. The paper is coated with a slightly stippled texture giving a very natural photographic finish and colouring. Silver based C-type prints are the ultimate professional photographic archival prints, created on light sensitive paper using a finely balanced light source.

Like any image, it's longevity will depend on storage. It is best to display using a uv resistant glass and to keep out of direct sunlight.

Print may vary slightly in colour and contrast to what you see on your screen.
