Sumedha and Sapan: a story of an Indian wedding | Photographer: Isabella De Maddalena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Sumedha and Sapan is a present day story, but tied to tradition. 
Sumedha Sood, 30, is an Indian woman from New Delhi. Sapan Basnett, 29, is an Indian man born in Gangtok, the Indian state of Sikkim. Sumedha and Sapan graduated from the same school: the National Institute of Fashion Technology, in New Delhi.


This is where they met for the first time, through mutual friends. After completing his studies, Sapan moved to Bangalore to work as a fashion designer. In February of 2008, Sumedha moved to Milan to study for her Masters at the European Institute of Design. One evening in October 2010, surfing on facebook, Sumedha found Sapan through "People You May Know", and sent him a friend request.


Sapan accepted the invitation and they started a chat online. In the following days they were constantly chatting, and then they started talking on Skype. Shortly after, Sapan sent Sumedha an airline ticket from Delhi to Bangalore for her next trip to India. A few days after their meeting in Bangalore, Sapan was presented to Sumedha's family.
In January 2011, they celebrated their marriage. - Isabella De Maddalena

Haiti, Port-au-Prince, at the end of Cite Soleil (the heart of PAP) is one of Haiti’s largest landfill, Here, a slum named Warf Jeremy was born, the final frontier of humanity for the Haitian people. There is no reliable census to calculate the exact number of the inhabitants of Waff, but the logistical support of many NGOs in recent years have counted hundreds of thousands of people living in precarious style, without any support from the state. The desperation and the great faith of this people reflect the value of life, a final bulwark in support of such suffering.

 

The Voodoo is a religion with African American characters syncretic and highly esoteric, one of the oldest in the world. The current religion Vuduista combines elements taken from the bustling traditional African practiced before colonialism, with concepts drawn from Catholicism. Today, Voodoo is practiced by about sixty million people around the world. In Haiti it is practiced by almost the entire population. The Voodoo tradition has gone through three centuries of persecution and misinformation and has been strongly discredited, many rumors and misinformation have promoted a general vision that is very distorted. - Paolo Marchetti
