Project 1: Capturing Old Barbados – Old Barbados through Photography
Old Barbados has fascinated me for a while now. For the past 3 to 4 years I have been taking pictures of many old structures in Barbados. These old buildings and houses are becoming a thing of the past. Structures are being bulldozed at an alarming rate to make way for the every increasing hunger for land. Big hotels, houses, and condos now dot the landscape.
My findings were so stirring that I stared a blog detailing my thoughts and stories on the many dilapidated structures I took. No one image can depict the whole saga of Old Barbados. So I compiled many of my initial images into a book call, Old Barbados through Photography. I reveal what many of the still standing structures (images) meant to me as a kid growing up in Barbados.

Project 2: The Parliament Buildings of Barbados
This photojournalist book on The Parliament Buildings, which are located in Bridgetown, had its inception when I visited the Barbados National Heroes Gallery and the Museum of Parliament in December of 2008. After touring the impressive museum which centers on those men and women who fought and championed for the rights of freedom and the democratic ways of life, I was literally blown away. And by the time the tour guide led me over to the East Wing where the Lower House and The Upper House of Parliament reside, I was convinced I had to put together some sort of photo book on the Parliament Buildings.
My goal with this book is to enlighten the masses of the beautiful old structures that still remain on the lovely island of Barbados. The Parliament Buildings, two huge structures that are parallel to each other, are a testament to the island’s long famed Democracy and even longer Parliament history.
