Protomagiá celebration in a small village on the Greek island of Crete

From morning until night, I photographed the villagers and the sites around their homes during their traditional Protomagiá (May 1) holiday activities.

 

This is one of those moments of the day as flowers are gathered by the children, floral wreaths are woven and hung over doorways, feast foods are prepared and friends and family gather in the village center.

 

Protomagiá is culturally the first day of summer and a national holiday in Greece.
