The Boy Outside The Church

Robert Coletti

That photo was taken outside the Church San Francisco , which is located in the heart of downtown Lima. During Holy Week it is common in Peru for people to go on a pilgrimage through the streets, visiting churches, with one of the busiest places being the center of Lima due to the considerable number of ornate and enormous churches it has. Stalls selling souvenirs and decorations of saints are never lacking during Holy Week, with people seeking to take advantage of these religious festivals and tribute to the death of Jesus Christ. The photo was taken at one of these stalls. The boy was playing around while his mother offered the souvenirs to passersby.
