On Healing Faith approaches the subject of alternative medicines from the sort of mystical aura and ambiguity that often surrounds these practices.
Each photograph takes a view on different popular therapies, from homeopathy, to reiki, accupuncture, crystal healing, magneto therapy or traditional Chinese medicine.
Taken with a pinch of irony, this body of work is Ana Cuba’s personal approach towards this beautiful world of ancient remedies, which holds itself together by the power of human faith on one hand, and the denial of science to preserve these same beliefs on the other.
Ana Cuba is currently based in London. She has worked as photo editor for Monocle Magazine and Amuse.
