A profound and wonderful photo from Paul who describes it thusly “the traditional festival in Sao Bartolomeu do Mar, occurs through out August and culminates on the 24th with the famous Bano Santo (holy bath)”, which the local people believe has the power to protect children’s health and allievate sickness.

This photo should be perceived in a divine sense. The child is coming from a sacred bath done by the fisherman. It is an ancient ritual against the devil and he must be bathed in the ocean by a fisherman three times in three waves during three days.

The child is crying bitterly and the fisherman’s got a worried look. Hmmmmmm, but why?

这让我想起一个电影,主人公在小时候接受了一种怪异的洗礼,使得他好像脑子出了问题。那洗礼的方式就是在神父念咒的时候要把小孩一直淹在水里……

你觉得fisherman 是 a worried look 即不愉快的表情?
我觉得这是一种在长期艰苦生活后的铭刻在他脸上的风霜,而不是那一时的不高兴。
我看到的是孩子由不理解而拒绝,fisherman则是一脸的虔诚。
不知对不对。

哦,孩子的哭泣還好理解,漁夫的表情當時我是沒有讀懂。不過您的分析應該是有道理的,洗禮是神圣的,作為施洗者的漁夫沒有理由痛苦萬分。有機會我會請教一下原攝影作者
