Advent Calendar

About

Christmas is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and a widely observed holiday, celebrated on December 25 by billions of people around the world. Advent Calendar is a photographic reflection on the commercial nature of the festivity over the past decades. Inspired by the traditional form of advent calendars which emerged in Germany by the beginning of the 19th century, as a method to count down the days of December before Christmas. She is releasing fourteen photographs twitter under #CalendariodeAdviento from 1st December to 25th December. Once again Susana traverses the streets of London to compile these fourteen images that resorts to symbols and traditions that invite us to reflect upon an ever increasing crisis of collective traditions which have given way to a consumerist society. This year Advent Calendar has two new (counts): From the 25th December you can choose twelves photos and make your own calendar for 2014. If you are in Gijon (Spain) you can visit the calendar on Ezcurdia, 30_bajo from 1st to 25th of December and discover a new picture every two days.
