CARIBBEAN by #Francescogiusti
Opens tomorrow 7-10pm

Queens of the Dancehall, Vodou dancers, gun-wielding teens, and hysterical Disney characters populate shantytowns. These images play on the exotification of Caribbean street life. However, Francesco Giusti is careful to counter these preconceptions with human moments of community and pride–scenes of children at play, couples embracing, lush utopian tropics, and brothers in camaraderie.

His photographs are as much about markers of identity–attitudes, accessories, or icons–as examining the complex and contentious cultural history between center and margin.

Caribbean is a selection of works in an ongoing project that documents post-colonial subcultures, trauma, and spirituality in Haiti, Jamaica, and Cuba in the 2000s.

Recipient of photography awards, Francesco Giusti is a freelance photographer who has primarily worked in Africa, the Mediterranean, Central and South America. He has exhibited internationally in France, Italy, Colombia, Germany, and the US. This is his first solo exhibition at HVW8.

Opening this Saturday, Sept. 27th at 7pm – 10pm. Please RSVP at rsvp@hvw8.com
