This sequence of images by Marco Motta, proposes to tackle Uganga ritual scenes, with images taken without the author's knowledge during a documentary shoot. Uganga rituals are extremely rich and complex. During the ceremonies, the rise of the spirits in each one causes a modification of the expression, in particular of the look. The shots were captured using a facial recognition feature, which is automatically triggered when a face changes expression.

Presented at the Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne

Short film by This is Not, musical arrangement and photography by Marco Motta
