The project The Book of the Gods was part of a master’s degree in documentary photography I studied in London in 2007. The project expanded for about four years and, as part of my researches, took to Brazil in a number of occasions. I also travelled to Nigeria, a Country that influences Brazil enormously in his religious history - notably in the state of Bahia.
There are many other aspects of the influences of African religions in the New World. Santeria, practised in Cuba and the US, and Voo Doo (or Vodum), well spread in Haiti, are examples of this presence.
On my side I was appointed, during a Candomblé (a Brazilian version) to serve Oxóssi, the Orixá (or Orissa) warrior.
