Description


In Let the Sun Beheaded Be, Gregory Halpern focuses on the Caribbean archipelago of Guadeloupe, an overseas region of France with a complicated and violent colonial past. The work resonates with Halpern's characteristic attention to the ways the details of a landscape and the people who inhabit it often reveal the undercurrents of local histories and experiences. Let the Sun Beheaded Be offers a visually striking depiction of place--as it has been worked on by the forces of nature, people, and events--as well as a thoughtful engagement with the complexities of photographing in foreign lands as an interloper. A text by curator and editor Cl ment Ch roux grapples with Guadeloupe's colonial past in relation to the French Revolution, Surrealism, and the Martinican poet Aim C saire, whose writing inspired the title of the book and much of the imagery itself. A conversation between Halpern and photographer and critic Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa delves into Halpern's process, personal history, and the politics of representation.

Let the Sun Beheaded Be was produced as part of Immersion, a program of the Fondation d'entreprise Herm's, in partnership with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson.
