One the things I love about living in Vancouver (and big city life) are amazing events like the Parade of Lost Souls. This event happens every year, coinciding with Dia de Muertos and Hallowe’en. If you’ve never been these pictures might look strange, but you’ll have to believe me when I say that this is an enchanting event to take part in. The event is community-driven; there are performers, artists and musicians set up in given areas, but the public attending are for the most part dressed up in costume. The lines between performer and attendee get blurred, and the energy created by this collective participation is tangible throughout the night. It’s a wonderful event to document as well, as there is just so much bizarre and wonderful stuff going on.
I’ve been having to play a little bit of catch-up, which explains the Hallowe’en-inspired images in early December. However, I thought they were worth a share!
