Valencia – Las Fallas
Every year, the people of Valencia compete to make towering hand-painted statues as tall as the buildings they nestle between. When Valencia native Modes offered to host us and show us around, we packed up the cameras and off we went!
There was a lot going on, and Valencia itself is a beautiful background for the photographs. For street photography, it seemed like a mix between Barcelona and Madrid. It’s smaller than both cities, and less touristic, which was a good change.
The quest was for photographs that went beyond the normal photos that just preserved what other people had created.
But really our favourite photos of Las Fallas didn’t just use them as subjects in themselves, but as material for artistic expression.
