Photographer Ana Nance reflects on altars in different cultures in this exhibition. A work that brings together images from all over the world. Historically, an altar is a flat-topped table or block used as a center for a religious ritual, especially for making sacrifices or offerings to a deity, basically a structure for the presentation of religious offerings.

Nance has carried out etymological, historical and photographic research on these elements. Presented here is a selection of photographs from a collection that has many chapters that are grouped into geographic territories around the world and drawn from an immense archive of the photographer's travels. Each photograph is presented as an allegory or fable that leaves room for the viewer to make their own interpretation of it, based on their own codes, knowledge and beliefs.
