This book represents a long-term project on the feast of Carnival, exploring both the multitude of expressions it has found world-wide, and the way in which each city has come to adopt rituals differently. Carnival is a festival season occurring immediately before Lent, with the main events usually held during February or March. Photographer Marcelo Marcelo Bendahán presents a dynamic exploration of how people portray themselves, exchange messages and communicate stories during Carnival. The images are bright, glamorous and genuinely exotic; their vibrant colours and intense facial expressions seem to transport the viewer into another world. In total, the book contains over 200 photographs.

Carnivals of the World by Marcelo Bendahan is a beautiful coffee table book with grand colorful photos of Carnival celebrations, parades, festivities, costumes from all over the globe. These elaborate festivals go back much further into history and are celebrated in many more countries than we had known, and each is unique. The author gives a good one page location and history and description of the country for each chapter, as well as the history of Carnival in that region. The book is a great one to own and display for visitors, especially in February and March when the celebrations take place annually. And it is a very readable and fascinating and beautiful book to enjoy over and over and to keep as a great souvenir if you attend Carnival anywhere. Five Stars!! We highly recommend this one!
