Visually Speaking: A Worldview from Guyana

Share

April 24, 2014

Program Locations:

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Langston Hughes Auditorium

Many contemporary depictions of Guyana and its people—whether via the image or the written word—continue to center on the exotic, the colonial, and the touristic. Award-winning photographers Nikki Kahn and Keisha Scarville will share their artistic visions and portfolios and explore their ongoing work to tell Guyana’s stories and to counter historic and contemporary stereotypes about the former British colony and its wide-reaching Diaspora.


Visually speaking is a photographic conversation series focused on highlighting the works and life experiences of photographers and industry insiders through their distinct visual lens and insight. Moderated by Grace Anieza Ali, founder, Of Note Magazine, and curated by Terrence Jennings.
