Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, France

2012. Piotr Wójcik The crowded town market, music is coming from every lane, crush on the camping sites, camps on streets, noise, neigh. Horses are eating nearby. That’s how Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer looks like once a year. Pilgrims come to the procession that sets off from the church and goes to the coast. They are carrying a dark, wooden statue upon their shoulders.
