social documentary

of mice and men…

As I was covering the Holy Saturday processions in Madrid, I came across a small, dark alley way.  Here I found the home of a local street performer that I had seen on countless occasions standing in the main square, dressed in his mouse costume for the amusement of local and foreign children.  As a crucified Christ passed by on the shoulders of the devoted, I felt more compelled to visually tell a part of this mans unknown story than to capture what was happening outside.

    These pictures evoke many different emotions, sweet sorrow being the one that comes to mind first. There are many stories in that alley.
