Photographer's Note

San Lorenzo is a very popular Saint in Juarez. It has a big church, and also a big festival once a year. During this festival, a lot of "matachines" dances all the day in his honor.
This festival is a big religious and cultural event, and also a huge party.
I took this picture of one of the "matachines". I liked the composition with all the religious things, and the cross behind him, but I like specially the face of the dancer.
There's a saying... "La religion es el opio del pueblo", which means "The religion is people's opium"... I think this picture represents that saying...
