RAPAS DAS BESTAS

VIDEO WORK and PHOTOGRAPHY Wild horses are driven down the mountains in Galicia Spain. In the village an intense annual ritual takes place. The horses run through the village and are gathered in a ‘curro’ a round enclosure. With their bare hands men and women catch the horses with convincing force and bring them down to the ground.  Their manes and tales are cut, while the elders see to that the ritual is rightfully done.
The video and photo production takes place every year from 2014 – 2018.
