putting up, and taking down

 

Holy Week images were made by Maine artist Nancy Jacob while in Guatemala, and used here with permission. This scene is of readying the crucifixion. Beside it lovers of Christ remove him from the cross. The celebration of holy week is a consuming enterprise throughout the country. Everyone takes part and processions are filled with folks, real and constructed. 

 

In this image we see preparation to crucify, and, beside it, taking down the crucified from his cross. Historically each station of the cross was ordered, executed and/or handled by authority. Historically ordinary citizens were compelled to participate in one way or another. Nancy’s images preceded moving into place these various components for the processions and celebration of holy week in Guatemala.

 

See Nancy Jacob’s dri-ki archive.

See last year’s set of Nancy Jacob’s Easter images. The series tells a photographic story of people readying for and celebrating Holy Week. Begin at the bottom of tags displayed to see the celebration in order.
