ABSTRACT
The photographic image is a window into the mind of the photographer as much as it is a document of any reality he or she wishes to capture. "Invoking the Spirit: Worship Traditions in the African World," currently on display at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City, is not just a document of forms of worship from around the world but very much a glimpse into the mind of one of the premier photographers working today, Chester Higgins Jr. Higgins Jr. has been a staff photographer at the newspaper "The New York Times" for more than 25 years. The current exhibition draws from his archives of more than 1 million images and spans the world, drawing photographs from countries as diverse as Brazil, Mali, Haiti, Ethiopia, Ghana, Egypt and the U.S.
