Mundos Creados I

Marta María Pérez Bravo

NO TITLE

In her intimate and personal photographs Marta Pérez Bravo (Cuba, b. 1959) transforms herself into a living altar. Together with symbolic attributes, in various poses and fragments she illustrates personal and mystic rituals that arise out of the Afro-Cuban culture, religion and history. The titles of her works, usually names of gods and goddesses, are not always explanatory, but serve as poetic characterisations of the black and white images which balance on the border of reality and mythology, mystery and beauty.
