France :

the carnival of Dunkirk Š Emile LUIDER / hemis.fr


Of all the French carnivals, the Dunkirk one is probably the most famous one, the noisiest, the craziest and the oldest one. For weeks, some groups – the fisherbands – are looking up and down to each other, are facing each other with sarabands and songs. They break up to animate the city and eventually are coming together in one huge heart to celebrate their sailors, to honor Jean Bart and forcefully demand their sardines thrown out from the top of the belfry. Under the sharpe look of our photographer Emile Luider, an happy and captivating craziness reveals itself.
