Roots - antonio baiano photography


“Roots” is an ongoing project about the religions brought by the african slaves in the Caribbean and in South America. These religions, meeting and blending with the catholic religion of the rulers, flowed in new identities like the Cuban Santeria and the Brazilian Candomblè. They represent, in my opinion, the deepest essence of the origins and identity of the black populations of these countries, the only connection to the land from which they were ripped, and whose roots persist alive and strong in their souls.
