The Ghetto Tarot of Haiti
Alice Smeets is a Belgian photographer whose portfolio is pretty impressive but with her project of the Ghetto Tarot of Haiti, she’s reaching a whole new level.
With artists from the collective Atis Rezistants she brought to life the entire Tarot deck including the major and minor arcana in the streets of Haiti. The result is just stunning and I fell in love with the pictures.
SOME OF THE CARDS AND THEIR CLASSIC COUNTERPARTS
Look at the Hermit. This is such a gorgeous reproduction of the classic figure of wisdom and solitude of our decks. I particularly love the lamp and the colour code. The Hermit has always been associated with cold colours and environment. The Blue and Green on this photograph match this perfectly.
Another amazing example of this beautiful work of art is the Hanged Man. Even the halo is there and this Hanged Man’s position is just perfect.
