Estelle Hanania's "Happy Purim" Shows The Fantastical Side of An Ancient Jewish Holiday

Happy Purim is a new monograph by paris-based photographer Estelle Hanania. Happy Purim gathers 42 images documenting 3 years of photographs taken between 2011 and 2014 during the Purim holiday in the neighborhood of Stamford Hill, London. Kids wearing home made costumes incarnating a wide range of human vernacular history and reality (from the pizza to the clown). Standing in the street they are revealing some cultural fantasies as well as the familiar invisible backgrounds of their neighborhood: a simple tree, a part of a brick wall, a locked door or a pavement.
