Hooray, Jesus Is Dead!
Jun 30 2011
I shot this Easter festival in San Fratello, Italy, a small mountain town in middle-of-nowhere Sicily. At the Festa dei Giudei (Feast of the Jews), about 200 of the town’s approximately 4,000 inhabitants dress in masks, loudly blow trumpets, and drink wine all day, all while pretending to be Jews celebrating the death of Jesus. The photos are part of a project that will be featured in my forthcoming book Incubi et Succubi, available in September from Seems Books.
