A photographic journey through the faces and wisdom of the women that hold the Bahamas Together.
Bahama Mama is photography book comprised of colorful portraits and quotes from the Bahamas’ matriarchs. It reflects the flamboyant colors and vivacious spirit of the women that hold the country together. It looks to capture simple portraits of the raw aesthetic of these women through photographs that accentuate their long lives through the lines on their faces, the bright backgrounds of their environment and powerful gazes that connect with the viewer.
The quotes focus on revealing the humor, anecdotes and timeless wisdom of this generation, which will soon be lost as technology overtakes the islands. They highlight experiences about love, relationships, work and how life in the Bahamas used to be compared to the present as well as home grown wisdom.
