Holy Ghost Festas

The Holy Ghost festas are summer-long weekend festivals celebrating Portuguese culture, Catholic faith, and the Sainthood of Queen Isabel of Portugal.

Festas are hosted by Portuguese cultural centers in various cities across California. These centers each elect young queens to represent their communities, who participate in processions to and from Sunday Mass. The processions are formal public events, with the queens dressed in formal gowns and wearing long, hand-embroidered capes bearing religious symbols of Catholicism and the Holy Ghost. Ornate floats with statues of saints are also carried during the processions. Afterward all in attendance are served a meal of sopas, a beef stew, in the tradition of Saint Isabel.

About Jackson Nichols:
Photography has been my passion for over 30 years. Having transitioned to digital photography as a requirement of my work as a graphic designer, my color work is shot digitally. My personal work remains black & white film photography. I work in all film formats, from 35 mm to 4x5 sheet film, and maintain a home darkroom where I print silver gelatin prints. I have produced 5 photo documentary books in black & white focused on aspects of Portuguese culture, which can be found on Blurb.com and Magcloud.com.
