présence – supreme exodus series

Présence is an ongoing photographic project exploring the ancestral connections between Afro-Latinamerica and West Africa.

The series investigate the evolution of Afro-Creole aesthetics that emerged in the Americas and Senegambia. The project is the main inspiration for The Supreme Exodus series and the fabric of Black Atlantic ideas on my ongoing diasporic research.
