Since Christiaan López-Miró was a small boy, he’s been drawn to the magical and mysterious regions of society.
All Roads Lead to Cassadaga, has portraiture, landscape, and still life combined to tell the unique story of a close-knit community devoted entirely to spiritual pursuits. The population is mostly made up of psychics, healers and mediums.
“You hear these stories about Cassadaga, and it seems very alluring and intriguing, a town full of psychics. The visual picture that comes to mind is this fantastical place where odd things are constantly happening,” Lopez-Miro says. “It was nothing like I expected. The people were not intimidating like I thought they would be and not at all spooky, for lack of a better word. I knocked on doors, and surprisingly they were welcoming me into their homes and interested in what I wanted to do,” he disclosed in an interview with Sun-Sentinel.
The most extraordinary aspect of the community is the faith each spiritualist puts into the work they do. Skeptical at first, López-Miró anticipated that the community would be stereotypical and dishonest, but learned that the healers, mediums and psychics strongly believe in their supernatural abilities and devote their lives entirely to their practices.
