Photographer's Note

For the last decade or so, Benin has designated January 10th as its National Voodoo Day (also known as National Traditional Religions Day).

The best place to witness the festivities is in Ouidah. Unfortunately, I could not make it there, but I did manage to see this small ceremony that was being held just outside of Porto-Novo. These men where chanting at the time ... I have absolutely know idea what they were saying mind you!
