Street Photography — The giant bride and bridegroom from Antigua Guatemala by RUDY GIRON

We encountered these giant bride and groom at the end of a recent photo walk where we were taking pictures of the Devil effigy that will be used for the Burning of the Devil celebration on December 7 at 6pm. Check out the my behind the scenes account @AntiguaPhotoWalks to see the Devil.⠀

These giant figures are used in Guatemala for the Baile de los Gigantes. There are all kinds of characters built as giants. Basically, there is a wooden frame underneath the clothes and a dancer is inside and carries the frame while performing one of the many Baile de los Gigantes dances. ⠀
