Kaparot Ceremony by Kieran Gosney

Shot with a Lumix GH2 and Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens during a Hasidic Kaparot ceremony in Williamsburg, New York. The older men and women were teaching the children, who tended to the chickens, how the ceremony was performed. Kaparot, meaning ‘atonements’, is a ritual deemed by those who practise it as a transfer of the sins of the past year on to the chicken. After the ceremony, the chicken is ritually slaughtered and often the meat is distributed to the poor. 

Hi! I’m Mariana. I’m a self-taught photographer from Colombia but based in Birmingham, AL. I love to shoot bold editorials. I also really enjoy using natural lighting when possible.

For this photo I used a 50mm f 1.8!

The flight is long and my soul is short.

Photo shoot for Greg Oyan (2014).

I met Judith for the first time in the bar i watch football almost every weekend and i was stricken immediately by her appearance. I got to take her portrait in that bar a few times and today she came to my house for a few more.  Although i found it extremely difficult to do her justice , i was pleased with at least 2 or 3 of the photo’s i took. This one of them. The biggest problem with portraiture to me is to determine if you’ve actually succeeded in capturing something essential of someones personality, especially of someone you don’t know that well personally. Thanks very much Judith, for letting me practice!
