Richard Sexton/ Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere (Spoleto)

(All events occur at RJG, 502 Upper King St., Charleston)

 

The exhibition, named for Sexton’s recent book Creole World:  Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere, explores the historically rich, interconnected Creole World through color photography.  Sexton spent over twenty years traveling and documenting architectural structures and street scenes of Latin Caribbean cities with similar colonial histories. Jacob painstakingly curated over forty color photographs that depict shotgun houses, grand-decaying mansions, and colorful facades of 21st century Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia, Haiti and Cuba.  “Sexton is one of RJG’s most consistent and marketable photographers.  His recent Creole photos are expansive and beautifully executed. One major challenge curatorially has been to pare down from the 200 images available in the collection”  says Jacob.
