Stephanie Keith, New York

Stephanie Keith brooklyn voodoo photography

Stephanie Keith’s work has been seen in the New York Times, USA Today, the Christian Science Monitor, Saudi Aramco World Magazine, Time and Newsweek among others. Her photos have also been widely exhibited including a solo show in the Sony Gallery at the American University in Cairo for work about Egyptian Soap Operas and exhibitions at the Brooklyn Library and the Safe T Gallery. Her work examines the intersection of religion, immigration and pop culture. This work is from her series, Brooklyn Voodoo, of which she writes, ‘Vodou has evolved over thousands of years from ancient African rites and beliefs brought to the New World by slaves. The major characteristic about the religion is direct communication with a large pantheon of spirits through possession during a Voodoo ceremony. The Loa may wish to pass on specific messages, or simply manifest to enjoy the music and dancing. These photos were taken in cramped basements of Canarsie, Brooklyn, where the largest Haitian community outside of Haiti continues to practice its faith’. You can read an excellent interview with Keith on The Local- Fort Greene/Clinton Hill blog.
