Publisher's Description

In Colonial Echo, two series are brought together as chapters with texts that are excerpted interviews written in the format of a screenplay. The first chapter is work from the body of photographs Casa de Mujeres. La Negra, is the group of photographs that appear in the second chapter and represents my grandmother whose nickname was La Negra. The images describe La Negra, as she transitions to the United States with her younger daughter. The conflict is in attempting to assimilate to a new culture, where the history of color and the distinction in class, transforms their identity.

Rachelle Mozman Solano grew up in New York City of parents who shared the experience of immigration. She works between New York and Panama the country of her maternal family. Starting often from her biography and family history Mozman Solano explores how culture shapes individuals, how environment conditions behavior. Her work is concerned with the intersection of mythology, history, economics, and the psyche through photographs and films that confound fact and fictional narrative. In her work narrative is explored as inherent to our humanity and shaped by perception. Mozman Solano’s art is deeply informed by her clinical work in psychoanalysis.
