‘Winter masquerade is an analogue experience’ – says photographer Jason Gardner on his chosen method of snapping revellers… In ‘Tree Man’, taken earlier this year in Silió in Cantabria, Spain, a local man known to open the annual winter masquerade poses for Gardner dressed in a hollow tree trunk… Complete with moss hairline and beard, the Trapajón illustrates the power this pre-christian ritual continues to hold in the present day’.

‘We the Spirits’ was featured in the Snapshot column in today’s Financial Times Life & Arts section, UK (2-3 December 2023).
