Photographer's Note

This is a correfoc.
And what is a correfoc?

People, since the ancient times, is fascinated by the fire!!!
And in Spain is usual find traditions where the fire is essential.
In Catalonia are very known the called diables (devils) or correfoc (run fire, I think).

And well, they are the diables, they are the devils.

As you can see the fire is essential in these parties or traditions. But the people is not scared. They come in the celebration and run between the devils and the fire.
And believe me, is amazing. And they look real devils (at least, while I was working with the photoshop the photos I listen the most evil music by Jerry Goldsmith and I was feared).

They, the devils, hunt the people who participate. But people love fire. And, perhaps, they have also something evil inside their souls.

I hope you like it, my little Mephistopheles

Esto es un correfoc. Pero... qu es un correfoc?

Desde la antigedad el fuego siempre ha fascinado al hombre y en Espaa es fcil encontrar tradiciones en las que el fuego es parte o la esencia de la fiesta.
Y en Catalunya hay lo que llamamos diables o correfoc.

Y aqu podis ver a los diablos.

Veis tambin el fuego y como la gente no est asustada. No solo no est asustada: ellos buscan el fuego (foc) y los diablos les buscan a ellos. Y creedme que son realmente malignos (escuchaba la ms diablica msica de Jerry Goldsmith mientras trabajaba con las fotos con el photoshop y estaba realmente asustado).

Pensad adems que los diablos cazan a la gente. Les siguen con fuego y azufre. Pero la gente ama este juego y les gusta que les cojan.
Podra ser que tengan algo de diablo dentro de ellos.

Espero que os guste, mis pequeos Mefistfeles.
