Richard Sexton

"Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as " the nothernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny. 

Over the course of 38 years, Sexton has traveled across Latin America and the Caribbean—including Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador and New Orleans—capturing the similarities among these locales.

Creole World features 200 color images as well as essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence. Together, the essays and photographs take readers on a journey through the ever-changing Creole world.”

I was born and grew up in the Caribbean, so I welcome any chance to feature this part of the world on ArchAtlas (even if I could not find any pics from Puerto Rico), thanks to Architizer for bringing this artist to my dash!
