Creole Madonna, Annalee Davis, 2002

“Creole Madonna asserts a current, hybrid Caribbean where identity is plural and interior space multi-cultural. The simply defined self cannot ever fully contain who we are - thus the need to evoke a multiple identity. This work opposes a fragmented status and insists that despite racial, ethnic, religious, generational and all other diverse specificities, there is a shared identity - a hybridity, unconsciously “lived” by millions, both in and outside of the region.”

They adopted westernized clothes that signaled them as Christians, as did this Catholic woman in Dakar, Senegal.1935They laughed at your clothes; and made you change your clothes, they laughed at your names; and made you change your names; but most importantly they laughed at your God; and made you change your God.” - John Henrik Clarke

“Native: Maiman, a Mojave Indian, guide and interpreter during a portion of the season in the Colorado country, in 1871. It has been observed that 30 years before Edward S Curtis began his famous study of native American’s dying way of life, O’Sullivan was working without prejudice within the field of his photographic art. Trying to capture the everyday aspects of life for the indigenous people’s of North America, O’Sullivan did not use a studio to capture imagery of native Americans, like many other photographers were at the time
