Procession of the Mysteries

April 29

Your Shot member Willem Kuijpers captured this shot during the 24-hour I Misteri procession in Trapani, Sicily, during which the stations of the cross are carried through the city on the Friday and Saturday of Holy Week. “I came across this situation on the morning of Easter Saturday,” Kujipers says. “The participants were getting very tired and I had to wait a lot because of the slow movement of the procession. The heavy stations are carried by the guilds of the city, each accompanied by a music group playing funeral music and a group of women and children.”

Kujipers has been attending such processions in Sicily since 2002.
