Description: The exhibition “Visions Archipéliques” [Archipelagic Visions] is a journey through the diversity of Caribbean contemporary photography: from traditional portraits in natural or domestic space to highly constructed images, from complex and detailed staging to works of digital creation, from sophisticated shots to impromptu cell-phone captures, from a postmodern practice of photography to a diversion of the medium. The exhibition reveals how, one by one, every photo participates in the construction of a global image of the Caribbean.
