CREOLE WORLD

$49.95

Creole World: Photography of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere

by Richard Sexton, with essays by John H. Lawrence and Jay D. Edwards

Hardcover, 240 pages, 11"x12", 200 color images, 4 black-and-white images

ISBN 978-0-917860-66-9

Written and photographed by Richard Sexton, the book is a visual exploration of the historical, cultural, and architectural ties that bind New Orleans to other Creole cities across Latin America and the Caribbean. Founded as New World outposts of Old World empires during the age of Western colonialism, these cities forged new identities from European, West African, and indigenous influences-by turns inspired by, in defiance of, and adapted from all of them. In Creole World, Sexton takes readers on a journey to Creole cities in Cuba, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia, and Haiti, juxtaposing sights and scenes there--such as shotgun houses or aboveground tombs--to North American echoes in New Orleans. Setting the stage for Sexton’s images are essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence.
