French photographer Thomas Rousset and graphic designer Raphael Verona spent three months in South American traveling around the Bolivian Plateau documenting the fascinating lives of a population of some 2 million indigenous people who practice “a peculiar blend of Roman Catholicism (a remnant of Spanish colonization), and Aymara mythology, which includes the worship of Pachamama (“Mother Earth”).”

Rousset and Verona made these magical people and their awesomely ornate costumes the subject of their new book Waska Tatay, “part ethnography, part picture-book fairy tale.” The book explores how the vibrant, mystical lives of these shamans, witches and spiritual healers both blend and collide with the mundane modern world.

"We were struck by how myths come to life when they are shared in the collective unconscious This is mainly why we wanted to show. The mix of images seemingly spontaneous, yet also built with other much staging reflect our desire to create an ambiguous language, the border of reality and fantasy, like our perception Bolivia."

Head over to iGNANT for additional images. Waska Tatay is available for purchase via IDPURE.

The fantastic microscopic photography by Volker Steger. “The speed is important. The right speed is about 70km/h (43 mph). Flies that get hit by a car at that speed look like fallen angels in the electron microscope.”
