Self portrait with bird. 22x30" Gum Print

In Americana: Portraits with the American Flag, I travelled through the USA using the grand tradition of the American road trip to make self-portraits that frames issues of race from an Afro-Caribbean viewpoint. This work includes photographs, serigraphs and videos exploring immigration and cultural identity. I am seeking to portray intercultural challenges, regionalism, and displacement, and to understand the relevance and consequence of melding and hybridizing in the American culture.
