Photographer's Note

Brazilian festival in Paris last September. I was on the stairs of the Madeleine church and this brazilian guy was dancing around, jumping up and there.

It was a Brazilian event typical from the Bahia state were people from Salvador are used to celebrate the Church. Here, they chose the "Madeleine" church.

The purpose of the ceremony was to dublicate a "Candomble" practice consisiting in cleaning the steps leading to the church with perfumed water and flowers to purify the City and push way the devil spirits.
