The aesthetics of Fallas

 

Spanish traditional festivals like Fallas or La feria de Abril are an important part of its cultural Heritage and one of the keys to understanding Spanish locals and their lifestyle. Understandig of these symbols and elements is not as easy as it may seem, as its real meaning is only known by the main participants of each festival, the locals. 

 

In 2019 the Fallas theme became relevante not only for Valencia but also for one of the most prestigious awars in photojournalism, World Press Photo that this year can go to Brazilian photographer Luisa Dorr for her series dedicated to Fallas

 

The theme is Fallera Mayor or the Queen of the Fallas and her story. From duties to visual aethetics: the costume, the hair, the jewellery, etc. Inspire yourself with these photos and book our Fallas experience in Valencia!
