Pyrotechnic Festival in Mexico: photos by Thomas Prior

Every year since 1989, the National Protechnic Festival has been lighting up the skies and streets of the municipality of Tultepec, State of Mexico. Attracting over 100,000 people to the nine-day event, the festival is literally just a huge crowd of people lighting spectacular fireworks and burning castles. Thanks to photographer Thomas Prior, we can see the action take place from inside the dazzling mayhem.
