Leagues away from the sequinned, sanitised, corporate-sponsored carnivals found elsewhere in the Americas, the Madigra troupes of the Haitian port town of Jacmel enact and subvert myth, legends and the nation’s own histories, their improvisational costumes and surreal narratives a Vodou-charged blend of folk memory, political satire and personal revelation. Gordon has been capturing these moments of magical festivity for years, where Voudou, sex, death and revolution are key ingredients in the stunning themes, where the men drag up, black up, wear cow horns, throw lassos and put snakes in their mouths!
