Synopsis

Moving spirit is a photographic narrative of a journey undertaken over many years to document religions, rituals, and faiths in post-apartheid South Africa. It explores the question of spirituality in a country once divided and now free. The title includes a written narrative that draws on the author's experiences, observations and research. Beyond the political platitudes of freedom and democracy, most South Africans eke a place under the African sun - and increasingly they turn to spirituality as a form of survival. The forms they practice may be culturally of the past or hybrid Africanised - Christian adaptations. Other more established religions have taken root here - Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. Collectively the spiritual map is a diverse and vibrant one. For the past several years Paul Weinberg has been photographing rituals and events around his home city and other parts of the country.
