Cimarrón. Libertad y Mascarada



In Stock

The term Maroon was used in colonial America to name slaves who escaped from captivity. Fugitive African slaves who led a life of freedom, in secluded corners and who managed to establish their own communities, or joined indigenous peoples in forging new identities.

"Cimarrón" includes a series of photographic portraits of the descendants of those people, dressed in masks and attire that keep alive the history and memory of their ancestors, bearing witness to those traditions.
The photographs are complemented by texts by specialist anthropologists to provide an ethnographic and historical context that the power of globalization is threatening.
