EveryTING Irie / WAVES, BRAIDS & LINE-UPS

May 2–31, 2008
National Film Board Mediatheque
150 John St

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.
