Penitence and Photography in Antigua Guatemala

Penitence and Photography in Antigua Guatemala by Leonel -Nelo- Mijangos

Even though mister Leonel Mijangos, simply Nelo for those us lucky to him, is doing an fantastic job with series Holy Week photographers, after looking at the cucurucho with the camera, I believe we should ask Nelo to bring us that perspective next year. I mean for to carry the heavy float and take pictures at the same time. 😉 Actually, now that I think about it, I am sure that’s how Nelo started photographing the Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala. We should ask him to show us some his first Holy Week photos taken over decade ago, what do you think?

Nelo is also sharing with us other stamps from Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala that are not commonly shown, such as people having chupete candies or the fleeting expression of a woman in awe. Make sure you click on the thumbnails below each entry to see the large images.
