Priestesses, zombies, snakes, and swamps ...voodoo, or vodou, is the dramatically symbolic spiritual tradition of many Afro-Caribbean people. It has beguiled and terrified outsiders for centuries, and its rich practices have often been campishly exoticized as the stuff of B movies. In VODOU, photographer Phyllis Galembo shows us the human and divine faces and voices of real Haitian vodou as it is practiced today. Re-released with a striking new cover to coincide with Galembo's photographic exhibition at New York's Albany Institute of History and Art, VODOU is based on Galembo's research and interviews with scores of practitioners and adherents, as well as participation in and witness of numerous vodou rituals. The companion piece to her national gallery tour, this is a beautiful, personal, and intimate document of a fascinating and deeply misunderstood religion.
