Photographer and Haitian Artists bring Tarot to life


Photographer Teams Up With Haitian Artists to Transform Tarot Cards Into Real Scenes

Here’s an interesting find, though a bit dated as far as when the article was posted: Photographer Teams Up With Haitian Artists to Transform Tarot Cards Into Real Scenes. The photographs are wonderful. This is a good, wordy article with photographer Alice Smeets about this project.

“The creativity of some photographers astounds me. Just when you think you’ve seen every creative, strange, and unique photo idea, another comes along that would never have crossed your mind.

“That was the case with Ghetto Tarot, a creative photos series created by award-winning documentary photographer Alice Smeets and a group of Haitian artists known as Atiz Rezistans.

“These fascinating images transform the mysterious (and, depending on what you believe, prophetic) cards into real life scenes captured in the ghetto of Haiti, using found items that the Haitian artists themselves provided and created for the project.” – from article
