FotoWeekDC: Black Dolls Project
November 10 - November 19
Black Dolls Project is a body of work composed of three series by French Guianese photographer Mirtho Linguet.
Poupées Noires (or Black Dolls) 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 psychologically and physically. The individual develops reactions that 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?
FotoDC’s mission is to provide exposure for photographers and to make diverse, high-quality photography accessible to audiences through the exhibition of inspiring and provocative images, dynamic programming, and collaborations with the local and international community.
