GaA"l Turine travelled to Benin, Haiti and the USA in order to capture the stunning images in this book. Charting the origins of voodoo, the photographs form an impressive series in black and white of voodoo practices and its historical bond with the slave trade. Thurine portrays people in their natural habitat. Travelling to Benin, Haiti and the USA exposed him to various voodoo practices. The pictures he made in those countries not only form the basis for this book, but also contain significant anthropological information. The photographs featured in this book will be displayed in De Kunsthal in Rotterdam (December 2010 until February 2011) and the Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent (May 2011 until September 2011).
