Colors of Summer


Written by Szidonia Lorincz

This project follows my quest during the summer of 2017 to grasp the atmosphere of the summer Festa celebrations through various cities. The center of the series are the people, who make this season all so special.

One of the most prominent customs of the festa in any city is the music played by the local marching band. They are the ones leading the procession as well as inviting passers-by to the scene by the music.

Street sign showing the way into Valletta paired up with some unconventional graffiti tag.

Everything is prepared for the marching band to begin their performance.

The streets fill up with the audience waiting for the performance.

Eventually the musicians arrive and prepare for the procession.

Young and old participate equally in the spirit of leading the procession.
