Abstract

Photographing Easter Sunday’s Misteri procession of the ‘Sacro e Profano’ in Prizzi was fun. Mischievous devils danced in the spring sunshine before a risen and triumphant Jesus was reunited with his mother, a majestic Madonna. As the two approached from opposite sides of town, the procession and music gathered momentum and then with a rush and the beating of drums they came together. The Madonna’s black robe was stripped away to reveal another of radiant blue and the crowd applauded and cheered. Kaoru, a dancer from New York, said it was more like lovers meeting rather than a mother and a son. Paolo, a photojournalist from Rome, laughed. After doing some reading Kaoru was right. I must write to her.
