Ritual, 2015

Luis Godinho

A Senegalese wrestler splashes milk across his face in a ritual before a fight. In Senegal, witchcraft and magic are an important part of pre-match preparations. Milk washing is sometimes a call to ancestors for strength and support. We sense the seriousness and concentration on the young fighter’s face, even though his hand covers his eyes. Drops of milk are captured mid-air as they hit his hand and mid-trickle as they roll down his knuckles and drip off his chin.
