From the series The Road to Tepeyac

"Every year, six million pilgrims journey towards the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City. During the pilgrimage, the faithful bring some representation of the Virgin of Guadalupe from home, whatever the medium, and carry it on their backs to the holy place for it to be blessed (...) The accumulation of characters, and the beauty and strangeness of the items they carry, create an exceptional series that helps us to visualize the intensity of this belief."
