Ayahuasca is a very powerful brew made out of Ayahuasca vine and the Psychotria viridis leaf. D.M.T. and monoamine oxidase inhibitors promote psychedelic visions. Its used as a traditional spiritual medicine in ceremonies among the Indigenous peoples of Amazonian and recently, has made its way outside tribal settings, as an increasingly popular method of healing and spiritual connection. Ayahuasca exposes the gap between who you think you are and who you actually are. Some say, a single trip is like a decade of therapy packed into a night, with spiritual revelations regarding your purpose on earth, the true nature of the universe as well as deep insight into how to be the best person you possibly can with profound positive life changes. I started photographing ayahuasca sessions but realized the real story was inside each person’s unique experience. I had to dig in. To produce these pictures, I interview my subjects after an ayahuasca ceremony and with their stories I produced a photograph.
