About

The title for this series of environmental portrait photography comes from the slogan “Carnival es la calle”. People used this saying in Tenerife years ago to show the importance of this festival which takes place annually on the streets of Santa Cruz. Full of joy and abundance, the party leads to a large amount of trash. In her dramatic images from 2015, ZiREjA contrasts scenes of waste with embracing couples and groups of friends still celebrating, oblivious to the rubbish which engulfs them in both reality and the constructed compositions.

Sobre el proyecto

El Carnaval es la calle. El Carnaval es diversión y alegría. Y también montañas de residuos que rápidamente desaparecen al amanecer.

Esto último contrasta con las parejas disfrazadas que caminan a última hora por las calles, los grupos de amigos y amigas que comparten besos y abrazos.

Esta serie fotográfica muestra el trabajo realizado desde 2015 hasta la actualidad.

Agradecimientos especiales a Fidel y Yeray.
