The residents of Taxco, Mexico celebrate Semana Santa (or Holy Week) with a series of unique rituals and traditions. Some of the traditions are more or less typical, such as vendors setting up in the town square on Palm Sunday to sell palm leaves and weavings. But at certain points during the week, all the town gathers along the streets to watch one of the most unsettling traditions of Semana Santa: the processions.
Raul Espinosa is a graphic designer here at Guff. About ten years ago, he traveled to Taxco and saw one of these processions in person. He was able to take some stunning photographs and share them with us just in time for Easter.
Here's a little bit more about what Raul saw during Semana Santa in the town of Taxco.
