The Ghetto Tarot

The Ghetto Tarot. Those who know the old-school, Rider-Waite tarot deck well will be impressed by this wonderful project.
Already fully funded on Indie Go-Go, this tarot deck is a loving photographic reinterpretation of the well-known Rider-Waite deck by photographer Alice Smeets. (Click the link to see the full deck!)
The description:
Welcome to the Ghetto Tarot, a project from award-winning documentary photographer Alice Smeets and a group of Haitian artists known as Atis Rezistans. The idea was to take the classic Rider-Waite tarot deck of 78 cards and create a photographic version of each card using settings and objects in the vibrant ghetto of Haiti.
The first run of the deck is sold out, but if you go to The Ghetto Tarot - Take Two, you can donate and snag yourself a copy of this great deck/project.
