Hope Road MMXX

video, photographs

My work is a celebration of my Caribbean identity and the black experience. Through portraiture, interviews, restoration and research with relatives; I explore memory and relationships within the family unit.
I find it interesting some of the similarities of us as a family. The paths we walk, and decisions we make. The generational continuities in fashion or locale. Our laughs or the way we hold our children and the stories we may tell them.
Hope Road is a tribute to my family history and future, a hope to reconnect. A hope to understand one another, by sharing our experiences. A hope to encourage self discovery and self education in anyone searching for erased, misrepresented and underrepresented histories.
