Intimate Portraits of Vodou Celebration in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti

Fête Gede, or “Festival of the Dead,” is one of the most important celebrations in the Voudou religious calendar. 
On the first and second day of November, gédé celebrations take over the main cemetery in Port-Au-Prince, and elsewhere in Haiti. Voodoo practitioners come in droves to honor Baron Samedi and layout offerings such as candles, flowers, food, and rum mixed with hot pepper. It is a time when vodouizants celebrate the ancestral dead.
