shadows

Ancestral Shadows (2015) is a series of  large color photographs inspired by the Afro Cuban spiritual practice Palo Mayombe’s understanding of the shadows cast by Ntangu (the Sun), which creates good and spiritual bounds to the realm of the ancestors. As in Bantu ceremonial practices, I danced in front of the camera and capture certain gestures to express the movement, the figures, the vibrations, and the fluidity of ancestral wisdom.
