Crossing the Water: A Photographic Path to the Afro-Cuban Spirit World by Claire Garoutte and Anneke Wambaugh is reviewed in this week’s Independent Weekly. Reviewer Sylvia Pfeiffenberger writes that this "new photographic ethnography of Santeria, Palo Monte and Espiritismo
makes a deeper visual understanding of such images possible for the
uninitiated." She concludes that "Crossing the Water‘s complicated images are striking, but also
pregnant with clues to a contextual universe that is impossible to read
without such intimate firsthand knowledge."
