Cre8 Gallery & Earth Tone Arts Present...

"The Orisha Experience" A Photographic Exhibition by James C. Lewis

Opening Party: Thursday 24th October / 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Exhibition Open Daily 11:00am to 6:00pm till Friday 1st November

Venue: Cre8 Gallery 80 Eastway, Hackney Wick, London E9 5JH

This will be the first European exhibition showcasing the work of photographer James C. Lewis. The series features his interpretations of the African Orishas from the Ifa religion of Nigeria.

His choice to create this series may have been a subconscious homage to his Nigerian heritage, but his true goal was to tell the story of the Orishas who inspired much of the Greek mythology that we have come to know. This series is a powerful and enlightening series that features astoundingly beautiful imagery of African people.

"I wanted to portray the regal beauty of each Orisha while also representing their majestic sensuality. Each iconic depiction was rendered to lend strength to our resilience as a great race of people and to show our youth that they are beautiful, bold and brilliant just the way God created them to be."

    Loved it! Was there for an hour but will visit again. Is there a way for the future to be able to recognise fellow members of the group?

    Loved it. The space, the images, the meanings behind each of the elements, the libation, drumming, the people that attended and the exchange we had. More of these types of evenings are needed. Great to see Chris again, the lovely Tessa was in the house but didn't see anyone else from the meetup crew. Cor blimey you guys missed out but guess what? They're at it again this Sunday 2-7pm same place. Spread the word.
