INTENTION

Manifesto

The world is sick. Like for any disease, rather treat the disease than the symptoms. The disease is not skin color. Mistreating individuals according to their skin color is a symptom of evil. Madness is an imbalance. So, it is necessary to restore Balance to cure ourselves. To eradicate an epidemic, one treats each individual until all are healed.

Black Dolls Project is a body of work composed of three photographic series. Poupées Noires is the reality of persons classified as non-white. They are Dolls. Flora is the imaginary that is inculcated and inoculated, shaping the reality that surrounds them. Mental-Cide is the terminal phase, letting them disarticulated, both psychically and physically. The individual develops reactions which lead him to mistreat himself and to mistreat the other.

Are we ready to accept our condition?
Are we ready to begin the healing process?
Do we aim at producing justice?

BLACK DOLLS PROJECT

Last November at FotoWeekDC

Black Dolls Project was on display in Washington, 40 years after Professor DAMAS last public speech in Washington and 10 years after the founding of the FotoweekDC Festival. While racial tensions throughout the United States and the world have been exacerbated, this project born in French Guiana, like Leon-Gontran Damas, was precisely presented in the heart of an iconic black district, Anacostia, a few meters from the house of Frederick Douglas. At the confluence of the works of Leon-Gontran Damas and Neely J. Fuller, Black Dolls Project is the fruit of the questioning of a person concerned by this problem; considering himself victim and servant, using photographic work as a support. It calls it among one of the various intellectual resources, helping to understand what racism is and how it works.
