“Los guadalupanos" is a series of photographs I took during the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe while I was living  in Tulum, Mexico.  Each year on the 9th of December, thousands of pilgrims travel all over the country to lay their eyes on La Virgen in Mexico City. This icon of the Virgin Mary is considered extremely holy by Mexican, who believe that she can perform miracles and answer the prayers of the faithful. One pilgrim had walked for about three weeks carrying a big sculpture of the Virgin, in order to deliver prayers that his sick daughter might recover.
