The Virgin of Taganga

A small fishing village on Colombia's northern coast - Taganga - is home to this beautiful Virgin Mary. I first set eyes on her many years ago, after an evening of drinking rum, smoking Colombian Gold and looking for the king, Elvis. I came back to her many years later when shooting a book project about the cult of the Virgin Mary in Colombia. She holds a special place in my heart, and may she help all you in this most uncertain world in which we live. She may not sing the blues, but she is the purest of blue.
