Paul Weinberg

MOVING SPIRIT (South Africa, 2006)

Paul Weinberg photographed religious rituals in the southern part of Africa. He saw a wide variety of spiritual currents, from Christianity, Hinduism and Islam to ancestor worship and New Age cults. Many emerge from traditional South Africa, others are imported. For instance, a Zanzibari religious community are the descendants of a group of slaves washed ashore 150 years ago near Durban after a shipwreck. Weinberg notes that through the failure of politics to create a better life for people after the abolition of apartheid, many Africans are turning back to religion.
