It all began with a journey to Brasil in 1968, when the photographer Leonore Mau and the author Hubert Fichte started working and travelling together. Mau, who was not only Fichte’s companion, but also his muse, documented African-American rituals and cults. Her ethnologic approach paired with a unique eye for motives, made her to one of  the most interesting figures in in her field. Leonore Mau died this week at the age of 97.
