Serbia 13. Slava.

The Slava is the Serbian Orthodox tradition of the celebration of a family's own patron saint. The family celebrates the slava annually on the patron saint's feast day. I photographed two Slava celebrations. I wanted to photograph this celebration both in a city and in a village. The first pictures batch of pictures are from a Slava in Belgrade. The second one are shot in a village called Porodin, where I got access thanks to a Romanian-Serb guy called Zoran Gruic, that I met while photographing the pilgrimage in Djunis last month. I am really grateful to these people for allowing me to photograph their celebrations.
