Photographer Captures the Dangerous Beauty of Fireworks

Recently New York-based photographer Thomas Prior traveled to Tultepec, a major producer of fireworks in Mexico, to document the National Pyrotechnic Festival during a holiday that honors Saint Juan de la Dios - the patron saint of the city (and fireworks). The main event is a “running of the bulls," featuring a seven-hour parade of large paper-mache bulls outfitted with 4,000 fireworks that explode around spectators. The result is a spectacular series of images that manage to capture the most intimate and explosive relationship between people and fireworks.
