Photograph of the Convent that Inspired "Blood Wedding" the Day Before the Wildfires Hit
This photograph was taken by Philipp Schumacher in front of the convent which inspired Federico Garcia Lorca's, Blood Wedding. We are in the nature reserve of Caba de Gato in the region of Almeria. This is also an area where many spaghetti westerns were filmed. And yes, you do know that really tough gal in the background. She is unarmed. This could be called "Dueling Poets." It is nominated for a European photography award. The day we did this shoot temperatures hit 106 degrees.
