"This is NOT Your Caribbean Get-Away Picture-Postcard Tropical Paradise: Post-Colonial Cultural Iden

Friday, March 05 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
Salon CD

This presentation will chronicle a photographic journey exploring
issues of race, class, and religious identity in a Caribbean
island that, unlike Delano's native Puerto Rico, has shed its
colonial yoke. It will investigate the challenges of documenting
a place that has historically been pictured mostly by outsiders
with an eye towards exoticising or commodifying the land and its
people. Delano will also focus on the process leading to the publication
of his book of black and white photographs, In Trinidad,
the first book to document the complex issues of post-colonial
Trinidadian identity through visual means.
