Photographer's Note

This is a scen of Vodun Ceremony at Grand-Popo, Benin. Voodoo is called Vodun in the locale. I was attracted by two kids watching the Vodun supreme god Mawu dancing around the yard raising a cloud of dust.
Vodun is a traditional organised religion of coastal West Africa, southeastern Ghana, southern and central Togo, southern and central Benin and the Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria.

Grand-Popo is a town, situated beside the sea at south-western Benin.
