Lantz

Lantz is one of many small Spanish towns hosting a carnival. This one is one of the more unusual ones I have witnessed.

As do many Spanish carnivals, it has a story. It involves the hunting down, capture and eventual burning of the mythical bandit Miel Otxin. Other characters feature strongly too, several of them in this series. There is a very impressive darkness to some of the characters, particularly when the faces are covered. This provided me with a some wonderful material to create some fascinating and rather haunting images collaged from my photographs.
