Here's a wonderfully presented video snapshot of a Vodou ceremony that took place in Brooklyn, New York about a few years ago. Watch and learn about the practice of Vodou - And I think you'll enjoy the artful visual beauty of this short Vodou documentary by the photojournalist, Stephanie Keith.
Note: The typical Vodou-practicing Haitian does not say, "I am a Vodouisant", but rather, "I serve the lwa" or "I serve Guinea".
Vodou Priest and Practicing Vodouisants in Ceremony
Stephanie Keith met a Vodou priest while attending an interfaith event in New York. He invited her to photograph and experience the religious world of his Haitian Vodou culture. Ten Vodou ceremonies later, she offers her images and reflections on these late-night rituals.
Can you almost feel the ancient Vodou spirits reaching out to touch you, invite you into their world?
