Documentary project that explores Tenerife, one of the most historic and important ports in the Canary Islands during the annual Carnaval. The images were made in the area of Puerta de la Cruz in the north of the island where most of the locals reside. The annual Carnaval is one of the biggest in the world (second only to the one in São Paulo, Brazil where the whole island comes together and celebrates for a week. Made upon walks with a mix of film, DSLR and the iPhone, the project attempts to capture the essence of an island and how it stands out as a marker of history, religion, culture and art typically reminiscent of Spain, more than a 1000 miles away in the middle of the Atlantic.
