GIt 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. 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.
