A new exhibit in Charleston, SOuth Carolina, explores the connections between Lowcountry architecture and that of Barbados, the Associated Press reports.

The exhibit, opening Friday at Charleston’s City Gallery at Waterfront Park, features photographs by Bob Kiss, who lives in Barbados, and Julia Cart, who grew up in Charleston.

Their work shows connections between buildings on the South Carolina sea islands and those in Barbados. The exhibit also includes information on the history of such buildings from the Avery Research Center for African American History and the Slave Dwelling Project.

The latter is the effort by historian Joe McGill to draw attention to the need to preserve remaining slave dwellings.

Charleston’s early settlers came from the Caribbean island of Barbados in the late 1600s and brought slaves with them.
