présence – hogon series

Présence is a 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 was the main inspiration for The Supreme Exodus series and the fabric of Black Atlantic ideas on my ongoing diasporic research.

The aim of Presence is to understand the role that transatlantic identities play in connecting human groups and individuals across different territories and cultures. On how the appropriation of each-others cultural artefacts has created a sense of home in the context of migratory displacement.
