Please do not Misinterpret my Composition(s)
This is a piece made ready for my exhibition last year with the help of a great young friend and colleague of different ancestry and sex. It is a piece done in Cuba of my partner . She is in silhouette and it is difficult to say whether she is looking in or out. My friend suggested that I alter the image this way to increase the difficulty in discerning when viewing it. That lead me to think of the true title of this piece-"Introspection". So you see she help me down this path to conceptual photography.
Many people in the Caribbean suffer first and foremost from an identity crisis. And even the experts and intellectuals who believe they are helping, they are not because they are still looking in the wrong places for answers and they themselves don't know they are DOING THEIR WORK in the wrong way or they refuse to believe so.
Common sense will teach us that if you want to know yourself you need to look first at yourself in a mirror-that will give a physical reflection and you then need to know the workings of you- that means you need to examine yourself mentally , emotionally and socially no one can do that for you-that is, introspection.
