Creole World

Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as "the northernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny. There are photographs of many urban places and neighborhoods that are difficult to travel to and photograph in, such as El Chorrillo in Panama City, Panama, a poor neighborhood adjacent to Casco Viejo within the historic district of Panama City. Due to the US embargo, Cuba is inaccessible to Americans as a tourist destination and over the last half-century has become a "forbidden island" to US citizens. Richard Sexton traveled to and photographed not only in Havana, but throughout Cuba, in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba, and other locales. The culmination of these travels has resulted in Creole World, which immerses the reader in an exotic world they would never be able to see on their own.
