18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
A night of celebration

During a trip that I made with my best friend to visit his family and the land where he comes from, the celebration for the Lord of Muruhuay (Tarma - Peru) was held. For several nights we went to see the dances and how people celebrated this special day since the divinity is well known for his miracles. The photo was taken one of the nights a family had offered a large fireworks display. One of the participants observes how close I was taking photos. I was struck by the composition of the person and the background full of pyrotechnic fire.
