Happy New Year from Nok and Orisha’s.

divinemoon:


The best Warrior…
One day life hit me so strong that taught me to resist
One day they lied to hurt me and I learned to go head-on with the truth…
One day failed who least I imagined and I understood that the words have to comply with them, and should be responsible for the acts…
Sometimes it is necessary to turn the page and start from scratch, although it costs, even if it hurts.
The best Warrior is not who always triumphs, but who turns without fear to the battle.

I love you Baba! Maferefun Baba mi Oggun todos los dias de mi vida!

"The Orisha Experience" A Photographic Exhibition by James C.Lewis

Opening Party: Thursday 24th October / 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Exhibition Open Daily 11:00am to 6:00pm till Friday 1st November

Venue: Cre8 Gallery 80 Eastway, Hackney Wick, London E9 5JH


This will be the first European exhibition showcasing the work of photographer James C. Lewis. The series features his interpretations of the African Orishas from the Ifa religion of Nigeria.

His choice to create this series may have been a subconscious homage to his Nigerian heritage, but his true goal was to tell the story of the Orishas who have inspired so much throughout history particularly in resistance movements against religious, social and economic imperialism against Africans and the diaspora . This series is a powerful and enlightening series that features astoundingly beautiful imagery of African people.

“I wanted to portray the regal beauty of each Orisha while also representing their majestic sensuality. Each iconic depiction was rendered to lend strength to our resilience as a great race of people and to show our youth that they are beautiful, bold and brilliant just the way God created them to be.”
