Dark María & Pale Jesús

Original Photo: Havana 2002 Cyanotype on cold press paper The church echoes from my footsteps. I pass the dark Santeria virgin of Regla holding her pale child. They stand next to an icon of her grown-up son, his knees and chest and forehead pierced by the sins of believers. I think of the many ways pale colonists cemented their power.
