Ayer tuve la oportunidad de asistir a la entrega de Premios de Canson Infinity en la Tienda de Piera de Via Augusta de Barcelona. Me acompañó el equipo de Anson Infinity , de Piera y José Manuel Alorda, ganador del 2º Premio de la Cartegoría de Color.
I am pleased to announce that my photograph taken at the funeral of Monexil Yonel has achieved the 1st Prize in Canson Infinity National Photo Contest in the B&W cathegory. The picture tries to convey the deep sense of pain of the mother Monexil in the final moment of his burial.
Monexil Yonel, alias Tifre The Best, a young Haitian Christian who played in a band rasta.This is a story about his funeral, which included a number of voodoo rituals. His funeral was a mixture of sadness and joy. I was in the cemetery in search of any images related to voodoo, and suddenly a bunch of guys carrying a coffin, while singing rasta tunes. Behind them was the family, with sides of deep sadness and pain. The funeral was a real show,they opened the coffin several times to take the last pictures with him, give him a drink ofrum and, of course, as is normal in a voodoo funeral, to put a salt lick in his hand to ensurethat it could not become a zombie.

Monexil Yonel, alias Tifre The Best, was a Christian young Haitian who played in a rasta band. This photo is a part of a reportage on his funeral with voodoo rituals. His funeral was a mixture of sadness and joy.
I was in the main cemetery of Port-Au-Prince trying to search of any images related to voodoo, and suddenly there appeared a group of boys carrying a coffin, while singing rasta songs. Behind them was the family, with faces of deep sadness and pain. The funeral was a real show and he photo was taken moments before they opened the coffin several times to take the last pictures with him, giving him a drink of rum and, of course, as is normal in a voodoo funeral, to put a salt lick on the hand to ensure that it could become a zombie.
Technical considerations may have been others, but I was at the cemetery only with my Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II and lens 24 mm 1.4. I always shoot with aperture priority, but for the curious and nurse about these things, the picture was taken in raw at ISO 500, f 1.4 speed 1 / 500, without flash and 24 mm focal length. He was subsequently processed with Photoshop.
