Andrés Figueroa Follows Four Important Religious Festivities of the Atacama in Bailarines del Desierto #celebratephotography

Stunning work by Andrés Figueroa via Juxtapoz:

“Bailarines del desierto” (Dancers of the Desert) is a ten-year-long photographic investigation by Andrés Figueroa of religious festivities in the Chilean “Norte Grande” desert. More than 100 years ago, in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, an especially unique blending and transformation of Catholicism and local cultures spawned various religious festivals known as La Virgen de La Tirana, San Lorenzo de Tarapacá, The Virgin of Ayquina and The Virgin of Las Peña. Drawing large numbers of pilgrims, the festivals center around dance groups from different villages who have spent the whole year rehearsing and preparing for the event.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
