Howard Cash

My work is a reflection of the relationships people have with themselves and with each other. My images not only reflect life, but my participation in life as well. I portray photographic images of great emotion by perfecting the art of drawing little attention to myself as I capture people engaged in activities that are important in their lives.

This way, she manages to translate uneasiness, encompassing the History of the islands and the struggle it implies to find one’s identity. Depicting stories featuring black characters, are rising a complex issue about what it means for people to define themselves through images and the impact it has on one’s psyche.
