As far as health and safety measures go in the UK, we’re pretty strict. We always keeping a bucket of water/sand by us when we want to casually light up a sparkler, and know from a young age that playing with matches is tantamount to murder. In Mexico, things are a bit less tamed, as you can see here in this magnificent series of photographs taken by Thomas Prior on his recent trip to Tultepec. Each year the citizens gather together to celebrate the city’s main export – fireworks – by having the equivalent of the Spanish tomato festival but with pyrotechnics. Makes our annual bonfire nights look a bit naff doesn’t it?
Check out the rest of Thomas’ impressively adventurous photographs over on his site.
