Pierre Fátúmbí Verger. Dieux d'Afrique.

Photographs and text by Pierre Fátúmbí Verger.
Editions Revue Noire, Paris, French, 1995. In France. 416 pp., numerous duotone black-and-white illustrations, 5½x7½".

Originally published in 1954, Dieux d'Afrique is a stunning document of religious practices in Africa--everything from singing and dancing to animal sacrifices and ritual trances. Verger spent a number of years travelling around different regions in Africa, becoming part of the cultures in order to document them. These images are expressive of the deep commitment African cultures have to their religious rites, and serve in the present day as a historical marker of an ancient and beautiful culture.
