Color wheel in February
Every year, the diligent farmer from northeast Brazil proudly parades through the quaint streets of small towns, having dedicated his entire life to harvesting sugarcane. His actions speak volumes about his deep-rooted cultural values and traditions.
It's truly moving to see how the colors and magic wrap around the marked faces and bodies in this piece. The carnival portrayed here is so authentic and goes beyond what we typically see in commercial parties. It's a beautiful representation of the joy and wonder that these events can bring.
In "Color Wheel in February", I want to expose a secular event known as "Maracatu Rural" or "Maracatu do baque solto", which exists in the sugar cane areas of the interior of the state of Pernambuco.
A Carnival of mysterious figures, suggesting the mix of local culture and traditions.
