With her project The Ghetto Tarot, the photographer Alice Smeets, based between Belgium and Haiti, tries to recreate the surreal illustrations of an old tarot, transposing the symbols and the interpretations to our modern world. The illustrations are from an old tarot deck designed in 1909 by British symbolist artist, illustrator, and writer Pamela Colman Smith. The project is currently being funded on Indiegogo.
