For my romance studies class final project I decided to make a photo essay about voodoo aesthetic. I organized it like a fashion spread in a magazine.
In our class we learned that vodou is a religion in Africa and voodoo is a construction made by popular culture. Some of the traits overlap but voodoo is mostly a Hollywood fantasy used in films. It has come to mean magic, curse, dark, spooky. I tried to include all of these elements in my piece.
This project was fun to create and I’m excited to have more free time this summer to create new ones.
