Tucson, Arizona – We always appreciate having the opportunity to photograph in our sister city Tucson Arizona. Our destinations include Lowes Ventana Canyon, Westin La Paloma Resort, Sheraton El Conquistador, JW Marriott Starr Pass, Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain and now the All Souls Procession in the streets of downtown Tucson. The ASP is one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today. The Procession had its beginnings in Tucson Arizona in 1990 with a ceremonial performance piece created by local artist Susan Johnson. Johnson was grieving the passing of her father, and as an artist, she found solace in a creative, celebratory approach to memorializing him. Today there are 150,000 participants on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed.The All Souls Procession, and now the entire All Souls Weekend, is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors. Many thanks to Karel Moonen and Paul Weir for allowing us to be included in the ASP media circle and ASP official 2017 calendar. Be sure to check out this years procession on November 6th in the Old Pueblo.
