Collection Images & Beaux livres

Each year, Seville re-enacts an event which is one of the most vibrant and profound in Catholicism. All of its inhabitants parade their effigies of the Virgin Mary in infinite expectation. This book is intended as neither a sociological explanation nor a historical understanding, attempting, as far as possible, to remain on the fringe of the sensations, perceptions and emotions engendered by Holy Week. The authors have striven to complement the dazzling images with momentary fragments of writing, in order to convey the essence of this contemporary paradox where the sacred unites a community in sublime meditation and overflowing joy. The images and texts evoke, by their movement, rhythm and scansion, this unique communion where the proximity of the Divine resides in a certain distance which has - perhaps always - harboured art and religion.
