Daughters of the Muntu: A pluriverse   

Inspired by the storytelling by Manuel Zapata Olivella in his novel Changó, el Gran Putas and its foundations in the Muntu concept and Ubuntu worldview, Daughters of the Muntu offers a glimpse into the presence and stories of Muntu Americanas in the contemporary Colombian Caribbean region. This series presents a visual translation of these stories as constellations of interrelated beings.

In this re-imagined multi layered photographic interpretation of the integrated family that Olivella presents in his novel, the human is and stays in correlation and communication with all other beings in a continuous an vital exchange that supports their existence.
This photographs are part of a larger work titled Cundé Cundé

2015 – 2021
