   Abstract

Margo Davis, well-known Palo Alto photographer and teacher, will present a slide show and talk on her iconic photographs of the island of Antigua published in her latest book from Nazraeli Press.

The twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean recently took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. Antigua was spared. Barbuda was destroyed entirely along with many other islands to the north and south.

When these Antiguan photographs were made, very little had changed from earlier colonial times. These iconic images of the people and culture of African heritage in the New World have become even more historic in the light of this season's devastation.
