NOIR & BLANC: The Art of Storytelling by Joseph Kendy

These beautiful illustrations by Haitian artist, Joseph Kendy, tell the story of a heroic ancestor during the Maafa (Atlantic slavery). It is a pictorial love story, painted with the themes of trauma, sacrifice, and courage. The story could have taken place in any part of the Atlantic world, although it is situated in Haiti. Haiti was the place where 500,000 people were in bondage until they rose up against their oppressors, and created the first Afrikan/Black republic outside of the continent.

No words are needed, if you truly look at the art with an open eye. Remarkable pieces. I understood every story behind the art without words.
