Ann-Christine Woehrl Witches in Exile

It is the story of women who, stigmatized as witches, narrowly escaped death. To this day, women all over the world are victims of violence based on the belief in witchcraft; in Africa alone, there are thousands. In the north of Ghana, in Gambaga and Gushiegu, Ann­-Christine Woehrl met women, who suffered this fate. Abandoned by their families and forced to leave their vil­lages, they found refuge in so­called witch­ camps. With her conceptual series of portraits against a black background, the photographer sensitively depicts who these women are – in all their dignity and with all their pride.
Five percent of the book proceeds and ten per­cent of the proceeds from the special edition will be used to support the Ghanaian aid proj­ect Witch­hunt Victims Empowerment Project, which creates and raises awareness for such places of refuge.
