ReturnMargo Davis

Margo Davis made her first photographs of the Caribbean island, Antigua, in 1967.  Most Antiguans are the ancestors of slaves brought from Africa to cut sugar-cane and harvest tobacco. She writes: “Antiguans would discover who I was: a white American photographer who was an outsider at first, but one whom they came to accept and trust. They understood that I respected their environment and allowed me to photograph daily life in their homes. Davis has taken her life’s journey with a camera in hand and with an eye for the beauty of the way people live their lives. Three books of her photographs have been published: Antigua Black: Portrait of an Island People (scrimshaw Press, San Francisco, 1973); Under One Sky (Stanford University Press, Stanford, California2005); and Antigua: Photographs: 1967-1973 (Nazraeli Press, Paso Robles, California, 2016).
