Faces of the Oratorio Procession

April 16, 2023

by Jack Paulus, photos and text


The SMA celebrations of Semana Santa are very new to me so I was very caught up in the newness of it all. The large participation, the pageantry and the respect of those involved made it challenging to know what to capture but I found myself returning to the faces of the participants as representative of the event.



Jack Paulus has lived in SMA for a year and a half but this was his first Semana Santa. Before moving here he spent decades in the movie industry (Pixar). There expressing creativity collectively involved hundreds of other people. He observes, "I have been taking photos since the age of 12 and now I enjoy capturing life around me in images in a solo capacity."
