Parisian photographer and graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Estelle Hanania is obsessed with the customs of foreign cultures. Her photography expresses an organic awe at the way people can transform upon becoming part of a collective group, making it possible for practices that are found outlandish and incomprehensible by one person to become time-honored tradition for another. Estelle has traveled to various regions around the world to capture different cultural celebrations and ceremonies. Here are some photos from her collaboration (“Dondoro”) the great Japanese puppet master Hoichi Okamoto, back in 2008.
