"Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as " the nothernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny.
Over the course of 38 years, Sexton has traveled across Latin America and the Caribbean—including Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador and New Orleans—capturing the similarities among these locales.
Creole World features 200 color images as well as essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence. Together, the essays and photographs take readers on a journey through the ever-changing Creole world.”
I was born and grew up in the Caribbean, so I welcome any chance to feature this part of the world on ArchAtlas (even if I could not find any pics from Puerto Rico), thanks to Architizer for bringing this artist to my dash!
"I put something in my mouth that is roughly pill shaped. It’s not a pill, just a small egg someone painted many different colors. A family of birds grows up in my stomach. Their beaks are made of charcoal. They make long sketches of you & pin them to the walls."
— Bob Schofield, “Our Lives Sit Far Apart & Turn Into A Kind Of Wilderness,” published in Medium (via bostonpoetryslam)
"In order to get some answers, and to start putting faces on the often overlooked bisexual population, The Advocate asked four questions of 27 bisexual people and those in relationships with someone who is bisexual. The answers come from an eclectic group in monogamous, nonmonogamous, and polyamorous relationships as well as other couplings that just don’t have labels. Their stories depict just a small portion of the bisexual-involved couples all around the world.
In this first part, we asked the couples to name the biggest misconceptions they face in their relationships. Using #27BiStories, readers can respond with their own experiences, and share these stories on social media. This is the beginning of a conversation that begins highlighting the sometimes silent B in LGBT.”
