From the Caribbean to the North Star

Jennifer Domise


The photographic portraits presented in Jennifer Domise’s From the Caribbean to the North Star are images of life, work and landscapes occupied by Jamaican male and female greenhouse labourers within the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program. Shot in Canada’s “Tomato Capital,” Leamington, Ontario, the sepia-toned snapshots eschew territorial boundaries to reveal transnational spaces of longing and connectivity to the subjects’ Jamaican homeland. Many thanks to Nanni’s Natural Hair Care Salon for sponsoring this exhibition.
