I am and always have been an advocate of spontaneous and realistic photojournalism. I photograph what's there.

Soul Hunt
"Air, water, earth, fire are the four elements used in pagan rituals, be they by the shamans of Siberia, the Voodoo in HaïtiHaiti, the Dogon of Mali, the Shinto in Japan, or the Bari of the Amazon.

"Spirits take possession of the devotees' mind through air; water cleanses; earth and stones are totems to receive their prayers; fire is the blade of sacrifice."

<i>Tierra Negra</i>
Tierra Negra
by Maya Goded
The idea of nationalism in Mexico has historically been centered on the Spanish immigrants and the native Indian tribes. The contributions of the "third root"—the black communities in Mexico—have remained largely ignored. In the early 1990s, photographer Maya Goded made a thorough journey to the coasts of Guerrero and Oaxaca, registering with her camera the daily life of the third root. The photographs in this, her first book, validate themselves without long explanations: Loving and brutal yet decidedly sincere, the images succeed not only in telling the photojournalistic story but also in achieving artistic expression. Immersed in the richness of the society she observes, Goded has bestowed a personal and intimate offering to the national dialogue of Mexico and what it means to be Mexican today.
