The Road to Chimayó

18 April 2014. Walk from Santa Fe to El Santuario de Chimayó, a holy site located 25 miles north of the city. Every year, tens of thousands make a walking pilgrimage to the site centered around Good Friday, the moveable feast just before Easter. The chapel is also known for a well of holy dirt located on site, recognized for its healing properties. This walk marked the beginning of the Good Friday series, exploring different routes, rituals and means of tracking distance on the same occasion every year. Film shot with Rolleiflex.
