Yemaya is a goddess of the moon, and the deep waters. She pulls on the tides, constantly renewing life as the mother goddess of the Orisha. For this photoshoot, my model and I wanted to show Yemaya as both the ancient goddess of the Yoruba, and also give her a new interpretation as an Afrofuturistic queen. The ancient gods are always shifting and evolving, and transforming into new incarnations.
