not his real face, of one of the carnival characters in Jacmel

One of the most photogenic parts of any carnival are the people, and how they have decorated themselves for the festival – their own faces, or their elaborate masks. I often create a photo reportage of the faces of carnival in my hometown, but Jacmel is of course equally attractive. Just a few more pictures, then!
