Photography Exhibit - working title, Goddesses of Nature
Exposição fotográfica - Deusas da natureza
A companion photography exhibition has been created and will be displayed at select screening events of the film, Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil.
The exhibition features 13 stunning 20" x 30" photographic prints on high gloss, white aluminum. Images were shot on location during production primarily by photographer/videographer Gerald Lee Hoffman. Photographs will be available for sale at special events in various formats, and by special order.
Giving Back to the Communities….
The photo of the majestic Sisterhood of the Boa Morte was taken by a young member of the Calafate Women's Collective in Salvador, Bahia, during a service learning workshop conducted by Gerald Hoffman and Donna Roberts. Partial proceeds from sales of that image support the work of the Collective. Similarly, partial proceeds from sales of our project's signature photograph of elder matriarch Mãe Filhinha de Yemanjá-Ogunté will support the work of the Sisterhood of the Boa Morte, of which Mãe Filhinha was a longtime Sister and leader.
The photography exhibit is funded in part by The Heinz Endowments' Small Arts Initiative.
