Cimarron: Freedom Masquerade - Charles Fréger


Freedom Masquerade - Charles Fréger

Since the 16th century, all over the American continents, enslaved Africans have escaped their captors and founded their own communities or merged with indigenous peoples to form new identities. In his new series Cimarron – a Spanish-American term used to describe the fled slaves – Charles Fréger shows photographic portraits of their descendants today. In Brazil, Colombia, the Caribbean islands, Central America and the southern United States, masquerades are still staged today to celebrate and keep alive the history and cultural memory of African slaves and their descendants.
