Photographer's Note

On Good Friday (Lent Season), some devout Catholic sinners in the Philippines atone for their sins by cutting their backs, then whipping their own wounded backs with sticks tied to a rope as they walk the streets.

In Barangay Cutud, Pampanga, this ritual even includes some people being actually nailed on crosses (though they survive the ordeal).
