Thomas Donley "Ubuntu Dreams" Project

New York photographer Thomas Donley recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for his project “Ubuntu Dreams: Blood of the Ancestors” The project is a photographic journey to the Xhosa Sangoma of South Africa to bear witness to sacred ceremonies, trance dance and their daily life, and although sadly he was unable to reach his pledge by the deadline, I still wanted to give it a mention in my newsletter this month.

“It has been well documented by Anthropologists worldwide that humanity is descended from one African tribe from the southern shores of South Africa” – Scientific American, “What Makes Us Human” (special edition Nov12-Mar13)

“in order for us to know where we are going as a human race, it is important for us to know where we come from. The Xhosa medicine people, the ‘Amagqirha’ are one of the oldest shamanic cultures in the world today. They can help us to remember our humanity, and our connection to our blood and bones.” – John Lockley, Xhosa Sangoma (January 2013)
