Synopsis: "The creativity of some photographers astounds me. Just when you think you've seen every creative, strange and unique photo idea, another comes along. These fascinating images by award-winning photographer Alice Smeets transform the mysterious cards into real-life scenes captured in the ghetto of Haiti." Photo blogger DL Cade, 500px

In this book multi-award winning artist Alice Smeets interprets traditional tarot cards through the art of photography. The scenes are inspired by the Rider Waite Tarot Deck, designed in 1919, and were recreated with a group of Haitian artists, the Atis Rezistans collective, in the ghettos of Haiti. The traditional symbolism of 78 tarot cards is transformed into timeless images. "Taking ordinary pictures of the scenes seemed too simple, my aim was to create a very personal deck without losing the spirit of the cards. I combined my passions: the spiritual world, the Haitian culture, the philosophical reflections about the dualities in our world and, of course, photography," says Alice Smeets. Atis Rezistans played a special part in the realisation. They acted as models in front of the camera and constructed the objects needed. Smeets doesn't show the expected image of despair in the slums, instead she presents life in the ghetto full of power, joy and creativity.

Contents:
Major arcana; The story and vision of the Ghetto Tarot; Minor arcana; My passion for tarot; My lessons at Ghetto University; Harmony, adventure, mystery, dignity and peace.

Text in English, French, and German.

Book Description Edition Lammerhuber, 2015. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut Exemplar mit geringen Lagerspuren oder kleinen Mängeln, unbenutzt, als Mängelexemplar gekennzeichnet - THE GHETTO TAROT ist eine fotografisch-künstlerische Interpretation der traditionellen Tarotkarten. Die Szenen wurden vom Rider-Waite-Tarot-Deck (ursprünglich 1919 von der Künstlerin Pamela Colman Smith entworfen) inspiriert und zusammen mit einer Gruppe haitianischer Künstler, den Atis Rezistans, in den Ghettos von Haiti gestaltet. Die tradierte Symbolik der Karten hat sich in zeitlose Chiffren verwandelt, mit denen das moderne Heute ebenso entschlüsselt werden kann wie Ereignisse, die weit in eine 'andere Zeit' zurückreichen. Das Fotoprojekt von Alice Smeets ist keine Verherrlichung des Ghettos, sondern versucht das Leben im Ghetto in differenzierenden Lichtern zu zeigen, voller Kraft, Leben, Freude und Kreativität. Ghetto Tarot will die Mauern von Vorurteilen und Unwissenheit wenigstens ein Stück weit einreißen. 208 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # INF1000412738
