Spain’s Falleras Bring Historic Opulence To Life Through The Lens Of The Photographer Luisa Dörr
Photographer Luisa Dörr was visiting her husband’s family in Cambrils, Spain, when she came across three words that took her work in a new—and lavish—direction: Fallas de Valencia.
“I saw a fallera dressed and loved it immediately,” says 29-year-old Dörr, a native of Brazil. She started to dig into stories of the falleras’ traditions and history, researching their past and learning about communities today that embrace the custom.
Held annually in March, the Fallas de Valencia, or the Fiesta de San Jose, is among the most celebrated traditions in Valencia and one of the country’s biggest street festivals. The event is marked by fireworks, music, and parades. Valencianos prepare for the five-day event by constructing elaborate papier-mâché monuments and satirical figurines, known as fallas, that are burned to the ground on the last night of the festival.
