EveryTING Irie / WAVES, BRAIDS & LINE-UPS

Christina Leslie


In EveryTING Irie Leslie draws upon Jamaican signifiers. Her photographic portraits mimic the jacket covers of Jamaican records and reggae and ska posters from the early 60s and 70s. Leslie’s insertion of Jamaican text offers intimate reflections of migration and notions of settlement and a reimagined past. Waves, Braids and Line-ups uses documentary-style photography to explore the shared histories of those who visit the Black barbershops of Toronto.
