Giant Kites for All Saints’ Day in Santiago Sacatepequez

Giant Kites for All Saints' Day in Santiago Sacatepequez by Rudy Giron

Visitors enjoy the giant kites on display at the cemetery of Santiago Sacatepéquez, Guatemala, a tradition which dates back more than 119 years. Most of the giant kites on display measure more than 20 meters across.

This photograph was captured as part of my intensive Day of the Dead photo workshop. We had a full 10-hr day that took us everywhere to document the different ways Guatemalans celebrate Day of the Dead and All Saints Day. Make sure you book your spot for the 2019 Day of the Dead street photography workshop; spaces are limited!

Also, thanks to the German Photo Agency DPA, this photograph and other 8 images were published by many newspapers and online media websites around the world.
