Moderated by FotoFest co-founder Wendy Watriss, A Double Consciousness, presents Latinx photographers; Delilah Montoya, Jan Rattia, Cristina Velásquez, and Francis Almendárez whose works address postcolonial perspectives from diverse critical positions. As a reclaimed and hybrid identity, a condition that generates a double consciousness, the panel is more than a reflection of diaspora. By navigate shifting centers and hierarchies of postcolonial structures, these Latinx image-makers cast attention to the history, exchange and migration of Latinx culture found both in front of and behind the camera. Composed out of specific experiences, Post-colonial photography is self-consciously an image of otherness and resistance.
