Semana Santa

Chris Clunn’s classic study of the Holy Week celebrations in El Cabanyul, Valencia. Available in hardback here.

Semana Santa Marinera is the biggest event of the year in Valencia’s Maritime quarters. Dating back hundreds of years, it is a fiesta grande and a spectacle like no other, based on the Passion, the death and the resurrection of Christ. Renowned British Photographer Chris Clunn spent six years documenting this unique Holy Week with his analogue Rolleiflex and Hasselblad film cameras. The result is this beautiful, evocative study and moving tribute to the people of the Maritime.
