Printing in the Darkroom: the Creativity of an Intimate Practice

February 21 Wednesday, 4:30pm | Oakley Center

Join us for a discussion with photographer Daniel Goudrouffe in conversation with art historian Erica Moiah James. The discussion will focus mainly on Goudrouffe’s most important project so far: “Beyond Paradise,” a documentary approach that retraces the daily life of people in the contemporary Caribbean and the significance of the darkroom as the experimental research space that nourishes photographic practice.

Daniel Goudrouffe is a professional photographer. Employing a documentarian approach to depict the Caribbean, Goudrouffe  expresses a collective awareness of the impact of enslavement and colonialism on everyday life. His work constitutes a rare contemporary black and white visual archives at the millennium and in the 21st century. From 2015 onwards, he has diversified his photographic production and developed an interest in urban landscapes and portraits.

Erica Moiah James is an art historian, curator, and assistant professor at the University of Miami, and is the 2023-2024 Clark-Oakley Fellow. Her research centers on Indigenous, modern, and contemporary art of the Caribbean, Americas, and the African Diaspora.
