The Dream of the Orishas is a photo essay that belongs to the project THE ISLAND.
THE ISLAND is a photographic project with an anthropological and sociological focus that aims to deeply analyse Cuban society and its complexity, which I have been working on since 2009. The project deals with issues of Cuban society that are unknown, or have been little treated in order to understand this country of which only superficial glances have been given. It is a long term projects (25 years), divided into chapters.
The Dream of the Orishas is a photographic essay about religious beliefs and practices of African origin in Cuba. Cuban culture cannot be understood without addressing this issue that crosses society at all levels.
