Black Dolls at Vivid Gallery

Black Dolls – Mirtho Linguet

The Vivid Solutions Gallery presents Black Dolls, an exhibition by French Guianese photographer Mirtho Linguet. Inspired by the 1973 poem Limbé by Léon-Gontran Damas (French Guiana, 1912 – Washington DC, 1978), co-founder of the Negritude movement, Black Dolls is a visually impactful series of images which questions the impact of racism on the body and its representation.

He later moved to Zurich,Switzerland to build on his skills and became a highly sought after magazine photographer, working with GQ, Vogue, FHM, Cosmopolitan and many others over a span of 8 years. In 1996, he won the International Days of Photography Award and went on to a residency at Point Ephémère in Paris followed by a three-month residency at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Dijon, France.
