Spain, village of Guadix. 9 8 1999.
Some people prefer black. Others fancy green, yellow or brown paint and decorate themselves with it all over. Five hundred years ago a disagreement between two priests ended in the popular festival El Cascamorras. It takes place yearly in the Southern Spanish village of Guadix. “Be careful, at seven o’clock everybody goes mad.”
