ART ‘Semana Santa – Coachella for Saints’ – traditional Easter customs in Andalusia – a reportage by Tobias SCHULT c/o EMEIS DEUBEL

26.06.2024 • A beloved fair in Spain is the ‘Semana Santa’, the Holy Week for Easter when Spanish Christians do penance during the last week of Lent. All of Spain becomes an extraordinary spectacle with music, processions, cultural and religious events – but Andalusia is special.

Tobias SCHULT c/o EMEIS DEUBEL is very interested in the culture of religious customs in southern Spain. Which is why he visited various cities in Andalusia to capture religious processions with his camera.

Tobias : “Introducing my latest documentary photo project: an in-depth look at Semana Santa in Andalusia. I spent a full week diving headfirst into the epic chaos of Semana Santa in Andalusia, where the streets come alive with a whirlwind of processions, incense, and drama that make even the most intense Netflix series look tame! It’s like Coachella for saints, but with more incense and fewer flower crowns. This centuries-old tradition dates back to medieval Spain, where penitents process through the streets in solemn observance of the Passion of Christ, embodying themes of sacrifice, redemption, and solidarity....

Away from the business side of soccer, the heightened emotions surrounding tournaments, celebrity hype, trophies, parties, Camilo photographs simple, often improvised goal constructions that have been built in a variety of places, some even remote, with the desire to play soccer together.

Playing soccer is in fact so much fun, the condition of the pitch and goals often doesn’t matter, but the goals do reveal a lot about their geographical and social context through their different designs.

The photographer’s position: in front of the goal and without opponents. Camilo’s choice of motif specifies a repetitive vantage point in advance, which clearly limits his creative freedom. The photos are presented as series in the book, but also individually, depending on the motif, mood or context.

The viewer is thus constantly aware that it is a collection of photos grown over the course of many years on several journeys thanks to a playful passion.

Although there...
