Imagine turning the leaves of a book in which five hundred years of Caribbean history unfolds in colour. Read about and see the people who made this history, those who came, saw and conquered, those who were found in the region, those who were brought in as settlers for their labour. Not only do we discover the range of peoples but also their crafting of religion, art and artefacts to create a new aesthetic that is popularly perceived as Caribbean.In "Imaging the Caribbean", Patricia Mohammed takes you through a visual journey of the making of a new world culture. Using over three hundred images of maps, drawings, sketches, paintings and photographs from Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados and other Caribbean territories, alongside anthropological, literary and historical texts, she reconstructs the process by which another variegated culture is created out of the broken shards of parent cultures, combining elements of Europe, Africa and Asia, privileging no one group and seeing all as mutual exchanges that are necessary to the constant rebirth of the region and its diaspora.
